MISO revises size of Wisconsin wind project in its LGIA

The Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on July 9 an amended and restated version of a Large Generator Interconnection Agreement (LGIA) for a smaller-than-originally planned wind project in Wisconsin.

The LGIA is among Forward Energy LLC and American Transmission Co. LLC, by its corporate manager, ATC Management Inc. In April 2005, MISO submitted for commission acceptance the original version of the Forward Energy LGIA, with the most recent revision approved in 2013. The new revision doesn’t change the targeted commercial operation date for the project as the end of 2007.

“The instant amended and restated Forward LGIA is being submitted to reflect certain revisions in the body and appendices of the 2013 Agreement,” said the filing. “The body and appendices are being amended to reflect 50 MW of capacity that was never installed. Therefore, the maximum output at the Point of Interconnection is being changed from 200 MW net to 150.7 MW net. The Generating Facility will now be composed of up to 93 GE Wind turbines, instead of 124, rated at up to 1.6 MW each and one GE wind turbine rated at 1.85 MW. The maximum Network Resource Interconnection Service is reduced from 40 MW to 30.14 MW and the combined maximum NR Interconnection Service and ER Interconnection Service is reduced from 200 MW to 150.7 MW.”
