Central Maine Power (CMP) on Nov. 22 submitted for filing at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission the Executed Interconnection Agreement with Mid-Maine Waste Action Corp. (MMWAC).
The Executed IA covers the interconnection relationship between CMP and MMWAC with respect to MMWAC’s 2.1-MW waste-to-energy facility located in Auburn, Maine. MMWAC is a quasi-governmental organization.
CMP and MMWAC are parties to a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) dated October 1984, under which CMP has purchased power from MMWAC. However, the PPA will expire on Dec. 31, 2013. The Executed IA is intended to replace the PPA with respect to setting forth the terms of interconnection and to maintain the interconnection between the parties.
By its terms, the Executed IA will be in force for 20 years from the effective date (Jan. 1, 2014) and is to be automatically renewed for each successive one-year period thereafter, unless otherwise terminated.
