Alexander Wind Farm LLC filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Feb. 24 a notice of self-certification as an exempt wholesale generator related to its 50.7-MW (nameplate) wind facility and certain related generation interconnection facilities to be located in Rush County, Kansas.

Alexander is a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of NJR Clean Energy Ventures II Corp., which is a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of NJR Clean Energy Ventures Corp. (NJRCEV).
