PJM files wholesale deal for 5-MW Massey Solar project in Maryland

PJM Interconnection on Aug. 2 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement (WMPA) with Massey Solar LLC and interconnecting transmission owner Delmarva Power and Light.

“PJM is submitting this WMPA for filing because the Wholesale Market Participant intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to the Transmission Owner’s distribution facilities,” said the filing.

The WMPA is designed to have a similar format to PJM’s Interconnection Service Agreement (ISA) in order to provide a manageable and familiar document for the participants. Unlike the ISA, the WMPA does not address matters involving the actual physical interconnection of the generator to the distribution system or any terms, conditions or charges related to any service provided by the distribution system to the generator.

This project is under PJM Queue Position #Z2-097. It is the Church project, to be located on Massey Road, Massey, Kent County, Maryland. Maximum Facility Output is to be 5 MW. This is a ground mounted, inverter-based, solar photovoltaic facility consisting of solar arrays with tracking capability and a step up transformer with a high side voltage of 25 kV.

On or before Dec. 31, 2017, Massey Solar must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.
