FERC accepts interconnect deal for 500-MW wind project in Ohio

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Feb. 25 accepted a Dec. 31 filing by PJM Interconnection of an executed Interconnection Service Agreement with Emerson Creek Wind LLC and transmission owner American Transmission Systems Inc. (ATSI) for a 500-MW wind project.

The Emerson ISA facilitates the interconnection of the Emerson Creek Wind Farm, a 500-MW facility to consist of 239 Suzlon S97 2.1 MW wind turbines, located in Huron County, Ohio. Under the ISA, on or before April 1, 2018, Emerson Creek Wind must demonstrate commercial operation of all 239 generating units.

The project has PJM Queue #X1-027A_AT12. It would interconnect into ATSI’s Beaver-Davis Besse 345-kV circuit in north-central Ohio.

A project contact listed in the ISA is: Emerson Creek Wind LLC, 310 4th St. NE, Suite 200, Charlottesville, VA 22902-5299, Attn: William Pezalla. That is the headquarters for Apex Clean Energy, which lists this project on its website.
