The Southwest Power Pool on Dec. 11 submitted to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Generator Interconnection Agreement (GIA) covering a new gas-fired power project of the Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority (OMPA).
Another party to the GIA is Oklahoma Gas and Electric (OG&E) as the transmission owner. OMPA is a governmental agency of the state of Oklahoma.
OMPA plans to construct a natural gas combustion turbine and related facilities that will consist of an associated 13.8/345kV Generator Step-Up Transformer. The point of interconnection will be the OG&E Ranch Road 345-kV Substation to be constructed on the Rose Hill-Sooner 345-kV line.
The project consists of one combustion turbine generator rated nominal 85.3 MW (summer)/121.5 MW (winter). The project, under the GIA, is due for commercial operation by April 15, 2015.
This project is known by OMPA as the Charles D. Lamb Energy Center.
