The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Nov. 21 accepted Southern California Edison‘s Oct. 7 filing a Letter Agreement with RE Garland LLC, which is developing a 200-MW solar project.
The purpose of the Letter Agreement is to establish an interim interconnection arrangement under which SoCal Edison will commence, and RE Garland will pay for, the engineering, design, preparation of specifications, and procurement of material and equipment to interconnect the RE Garland project. RE Garland had applied to the California Independent System Operator for interconnection of its proposed 200-MW solar photovoltaic project, named the RE Garland Project. RE Garland has requested an in-service date of Dec. 15, 2015, for back-feed power to the project.
RE Garland has posted its initial Interconnection Financial Security, as required for the project to remain in the CAISO’s Queue Cluster 6 and to proceed to the Phase II Interconnection Study. The Phase II Interconnection Study and subsequent execution of the Large Generator Interconnection Agreement (LGIA) is not expected until December 2014 and mid-2015, respectively. In the interest of meeting the in-service date of Dec. 15, 2015, and timely completion of the interconnection facilities and reliability network upgrades, RE Garland wanted SCE to commence work prior to completion of the Phase II Interconnection Study and execution of an LGIA.
The RE Garland project would interconnect at Southern California Edison’s Whirlwind Substation 220 kV bus at Rosamond, California.
