EDF Renewable Energy works on 100-MW Indiana wind farm

EDF Renewable Energy is pursuing approvals from PJM Interconnection for the 100-MW White County Wind Farm project in White County, Ind.

The project has the number Y2-010 in the PJM generation project queue. It would be comprised of fifty-six 1.8-MW wind turbine generators, said a November 2013 system impact study from PJM. The proposed point of interconnection is located 70 miles from the Olive 345-kV substation and seven miles from the Meadow Lake 345-kV substation on the American Electric Power Meadow Lake-Olive 345-kV line. The location of the wind generating facility is in White County, Ind., approximately six miles from a proposed 345-kV switching station. The proposed in-service date is Dec. 31, 2015.

The objective of the impact study is to determine budgetary cost estimates and approximate construction timelines for identified transmission facilities required to connect the proposed generating facility to the AEP transmission system.

The PJM website shows that this project is still under study and that it has some steps to go yet in the PJM review process, including the working out of an Interconnection Service Agreement.
