Invenergy secures sites around the country for various power projects

Several power project affiliates of Invenergy Investment Co. LLC filed a quarterly report on Jan. 29 with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that said Invenergy has control of a number of unspecified sites for new power generation.

The commission has granted each of these project companies, like Beech Ridge Energy LLC, market-based rate authority. The companies are indirect, partially- or wholly- owned subsidiaries of Invenergy Investment, which indirectly holds the controlling ownership interests in the companies.

Through subsidiaries, Invenergy Investment is in the business of developing, acquiring, owning and/or operating electric generation facilities. Other than these project companies, certain other subsidiaries of Invenergy Investment are developing wholesale electric generation projects that are in various stages of development. Certain subsidiaries of Invenergy Investment have demonstrated site control through the interconnection process during the fourth quarter of 2014. The sites, without specifics being offered, are in:

  • Midcontinent ISO, seven sites, 1,570 MW total (the sites are for development of natural gas or wind generation).
  • New York ISO, one site, 24.99 MW (for development of solar generation).
  • Public Service Co. of Colorado balancing authority area, one site, 50 MW (for development of solar generation).
  • PJM Interconnection, three sites, 493 MW (for development of natural gas generation).
  • California ISO, one site, 6.5 MW (for development of battery storage facilities that will be located within the CAISO geographic area but would be interconnected to San Diego Gas and Electric’s distribution system and not to the CAISO-controlled transmission system).

The estimate of the maximum potential number of megawatts reasonably commercially feasible for the sites is based on the proposed size of the generation project contained in the interconnection request submitted in connection with the site.
