The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on June 27 accepted Southern California Edison’s May 31 filing a letter agreement with Solar Star California XIX LLC.
SoCal Edison, Solar Star and the California Independent System Operator are parties to a November 2011 large generator interconnection agreement (LGIA) that sets forth, among other things, the scope of work and the estimated cost to engineer, design, construct, and install the participating transmission owner’s interconnection facilities for Solar Star’s Avenue Solar Project.
SoCal Edison said that the scope of work has changed from when the LGIA was first signed and that additional equipment will be necessary to complete the interconnection facilities. The project would interconnect into the Whirlwind Substation. The May 31 filing doesn’t say when this project would be operational.
The contact list in the filing for Solar Star is Paul Caudill, company president, at an office in Phoenix, Ariz. This company is lately a unit of MidAmerican Solar.
The LGIA, approved by FERC in January 2012, shows this is a 325-MW project called at that point the Antelope Valley Solar PV 1 Project, to be located in Kern County, Calif.
