The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Sept. 4 issued a letter approval for an interconnection for a 100-MW renewable energy project in California that would be made up of four subparts.
Southern California Edison had applied July 15 at FERC for approval of a Clustering Large Generator Interconnect Agreement for this 100-MW solar photovoltaic project in Kern County, Calif. The agreement is with RE Columbia LLC, RE Columbia Two LLC, RE Clearwater LLC and RE Yakima LLC as the collective “interconnection customer,” and RE Columbia Interconnection Manager LLC.
The agreement said the RE Columbia Project will consist of four individual electric generating units: Unit No. 1 RE Clearwater (20 MW); Unit No. 2 RE Columbia (45 MW); Unit No. 3 RE Columbia Two (15 MW); and Unit No. 4 RE Yakima (20 MW).
An accompanying service agreement said that service for this new facility will begin by the later of July 1, 2015, or the completion of the supporting interconnection facilities. The solar companies proposed a commercial operation date of July 28, 2015.
The point of contact for the solar companies is Recurrent Energy out of San Francisco.
