PJM files wholesale deal for 2-MW storage facility at Ohio university

PJM Interconnection on Oct. 17 filed with FERC an executed Wholesale Market Participation Agreement with Denison University and interconnecting transmission owner Ohio Power.

"PJM is submitting the Denison WMPA for filing because Denison intends to engage in wholesale sales in the PJM markets from a generating facility connected to AEP’s distribution facilities," said PJM.

The Denison WMPA facilitates Denison’s participation in PJM’s organized wholesale markets via wholesale sales from its 2-MW energy storage facility located in Granville, Ohio. The Denison WMPA indicates that the energy storage facility is an Energy Resource, that Denison will be permitted to sell up to 2 MW of energy into PJM’s markets, and that PJM reserves the right to limit injections in the event reliability would be affected by output greater than such quantity.

Under this agreement, on or before Jan. 31, 2018, Denison must demonstrate commercial sale or use of energy and, if applicable obtain capacity qualification consistent with the requirements of the Reliability Assurance Agreement Among Load Serving Entities in the PJM Region.

The project is under PJM Queue Position #AA1-121. The location is at Denison University on Pearl Street in Granville, Ohio. This is a 2-MW energy storage facility with a 2,200 kVA inverter.
