Southern California Edison does interconnect for 3-MW solar project

Southern California Edison on Aug. 9 filed at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a generator interconnection agreement with Axio Power Holdings LLC, a subsidiary of SunEdison LLC, for a 3-MW solar photovoltaic project.

The McFarland-Delano Landfill Solar Project is located near Delano, Calif. The point of interconnection for the project is a tap on the distribution provider’s CBS 12-kV distribution line out of the Delano 66/12-kV Substation. The power would move into the California Independent System Operator-controlled grid.

Under an accompanying service agreement, service under the agreement shall commence on the later of Jan. 25, 2015, or the date on which construction of any direct assignment facilities and/or distribution system upgrades are completed and all additional requirements are met pursuant to Section 13.5 of the Tariff, or such other date as it is permitted to become effective by the commission. The project developer has proposed a commercial operation date of Feb. 8, 2015.
