PJM ends wholesale deal for 6-MW Purdys Run project in West Virginia

PJM Interconnection on Dec. 1 notified the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of the cancellation of an executed Wholesale Market Participant Agreement (WMPA) entered into in 2013 with Purdys Run Energy LLC and interconnecting transmission owner Monongahela Power.

Said PJM: “The Purdys Run WMPA is being cancelled at Purdys Run’s request because Purdys Run has decided not to move forward with its interconnection project and will not participate in the PJM markets.”

The project was under PJM Queue Position #Y1-034. The Purdys Run Plant was to be located in Marion County, West Virginia. The Maximum Facility Output was to be 6 MW. The project included two 3.1-MW natural gas reciprocating engines connected to a common bus. By Jan. 1, 2015, the developer under the WMPA was to demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

Project contact information from the WMPA is: Iron Mountain Generation c/o Purdys Run Energy LLC, 301 Oxford Valley Road, Suite 1603A, Yardley, PA 19067-7706, Attn: Kenneth Gates.
