With the developer no longer pursuing this 200-MW wind project, the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) on Nov. 1 filed a notice of termination with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
The notice involves a Generator Interconnection Agreement (GIA) among EcoHarmony West Wind LLC, transmission owner ITC Midwest LLC and MISO.
In October 2011, MISO filed with FERC the unexecuted GIA. In an order dated March 19, 2012, the commission conditionally accepted the GIA.
“Pursuant to Article 2.3.1 of the GIA, the Parties mutually agree to terminate the GIA, effective November 2, 2013,” said the MISO filing of Nov. 1. “Terminating this GIA is appropriate, as the Interconnection Customer no longer wishes to pursue this project.”
EcoHarmony West Wind intended to install a 200-MW wind farm at its proposed site in Fillmore County, Minn. The facility was to interconnect via a 161-kV radial line to the transmission owner’s 161-kV Harmony-to-Lansing transmission line. This was identified as Project No. G746 in MISO’s interconnection queue.
