FERC signs off on cancellation for 300-MW Illinois wind project

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Aug. 30 accepted PJM Interconnection’s Aug. 2 notice that an interconnection service agreement (ISA) for a defunct 300-MW wind farm project in Illinois has been cancelled.

The ISA was among PJM, Lexington Chenoa Wind Farm LLC and local transmission company Commonwealth Edison. “The Lexington ISA is being cancelled because Lexington has decided not to move forward with its project and will not participate in PJM’s markets,” said PJM’s Aug. 2 notice.

The cancelled ISA, which dates back to September 2010, shows that this was to be the Bright Stalk Wind Farm, located in McLean County, Ill. The maximum facility output was to be 300 MW. It would have been made up of 167 Vestas V100 1.8 MW VCS wind turbine generators.
