Arizona Public Service terminating deal for 85-MW wind project

Arizona Public Service (APS) notified the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Oct. 8 that it is cancelling a Large Generator Interconnection Agreement (LGIA) with Boquillas Wind LLC for an 85-MW wind project.

This LGIA has been removed from the APS interconnection queue as of Oct. 1.

In October 2011, APS filed this agreement with the commission. The LGIA between APS and Boquillas was for the interconnection of up to 85 MW of wind generation.

The LGIA requires submittal by Boquillas of financial security by June 15 in order to meet the in-service date requested by Boquillas. On Aug. 29, APS notified Boquillas that it had not received the security and therefore would deem the interconnection request withdrawn and removed from the APS interconnection queue if the deficiency was not cured within 30 calendar days from receipt of the letter. APS said it has not received the required security from Boquillas and hereby requests cancellation of the agreement.
