FERC accepts terminated PJM agreements for defunct wind project

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Aug. 29 accepted the cancellation by PJM Interconnection LLC of interconnection services agreements (ISAs) for a now-defunct wind farm.

The terminated ISAs were entered into among PJM, Commonwealth Edison (ComEd), and the two separate owners of the Top Crop Wind Farm: Blackstone Wind Farm III LLC and Blackstone Wind Farm IV LLC.

“The Top Crop ISAs are being cancelled because the owners of the Top Crop Wind Farm have decided not to move forward with its project and will not participate in PJM’s markets,” PJM told FERC.

The Top Corp project was to be located in Nevada, Sunbury and Esmen townships in Livingston County, Ill. Maximum facility output of the entire facility was to be 300 MW. The entire customer facility would have consisted of 167 1.8-MW Vestas V90 wind turbines.
