Central Maine wraps up grid work for 100-MW wind project

Central Maine Power notified the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Jan. 26 that it is terminating an Engineering and Procurement Agreement with Western Maine Renewables LLC because grid planning work for Western Maine’s 100-MW wind project have been completed.

In October 2013, Central Maine had submitted the E&P Agreement to FERC. It enabled the utility to perform certain engineering and procurement activities for a project by Western Maine to construct a 100-MW wind farm in Moscow, Maine.

“All services to be performed under the E&P Agreement have been completed at this time,” Central Maine noted in the Jan. 26 FERC filing. “The project is still in the study phase with ISO New England, Inc., but all of the engineering and procurement work contemplated under the E&P Agreement has been completed. Therefore, the E&P Agreement will be terminated subject to the Commission’s approval effective after 60 days of the date of this filing.”
