Name changed, operation start pushed back for Calif. solar project

Southern California Edison on May 21 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a new letter agreement with Satsuma Solar LLC, which is developing a 20-MW solar power project.

FRV Mojave Solar 4 had originally submitted an Interconnection Request to the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) proposing to: construct a solar facility with a net output of 20 MW to be located in Antelope Acres, Calif.; interconnect its project to Southern California Edison’s (SCE) new Q628 Substation via a customer-owned generation tie-line; and transmit energy and/or ancillary services to the CAISO-controlled grid.

The name of the project has since been changed to the Satsuma Solar Project and the name of the Interconnection Customer has been changed to Satsuma Solar LLC.

SCE and Satsuma Solar intend to execute a Small Generator Interconnection Agreement (SGIA). Satsuma Solar’s targeted in-service date of the Satsuma Solar Project was originally Nov. 1, 2014, but is now July 1, 2015, the utility noted.
