The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Oct. 10 accepted a Sept. 17 notice from PJM Interconnection about the termination of an interconnection service agreement (ISA) for a 170-MW wind project in Schuylkill County, Pa.
The ISA, dating back to 2009, had been with BP Wind Energy North America and PPL Electric Utilities. PJM told FERC that the ISA is being cancelled because BP Wind has decided not to move forward with its project and will not participate in PJM’s markets. The 2009 ISA has covered sixty-eight 2.5 MW wind turbine generators at what as called the Rausch Creek Wind Generation Facility located in Schuylkill County, Pa.
“The BP Wind ISA is being cancelled because BP Wind has decided not to move forward with its project and will not participate in PJM’s markets,” said the Sept. 17 notice. “PJM is submitting this filing to notify the Commission that Original Service Agreement No. 2123 is to be cancelled effective as of October 1, 2013.”
Under the agreement BP Wind had to get the project into commercial operation on or before Aug. 1, 2011. That was a first phase deadline covering 86 MW of generating units, with an Oct. 1, 2011, deadline for commercial operation of 84 MW of additional generating units.
