OCI Alamo 4 LLC, which has a Texas solar project due for commercial operation in August, filed on July 21 a notice with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of its status as an exempt wholesale generator.
The company, an indirect subsidiary of OCI Solar Power LLC, owns and will operate a 39.6-MW net (ac) solar photovoltaic facility in Brackettville, Texas. The project is expected to reach commercial operation around Aug. 15.
The facility is interconnecting into the transmission system of AEP Texas Central, a part of American Electric Power (NYSE: AEP). All of its output will be sold to the city of San Antonio’s CPS Energy under a 25-year power purchase and sale agreement, with provisions for extension of that initial term.
