FERC accepts termination for 60-MW California wind project

Southern California Edison won a Feb. 23 acceptance from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for the termination of a Large Generator Interconnection Agreement with Granite Wind LLC because the developer has decided not to proceed with its 60-MW project.

The Granite Mountain Wind Farm project was to be located in San Bernardino County, Calif., with an interconnect to the Jasper 220-kV Substation. FERC had accepted this LGIA in January 2011. It was to be made up of twenty 3-MW Vestas V-90 wind turbine generators and the project was to be commercially operating by the end of 2013.

The developer, a subsidiary of RES America Developments Inc., requested termination of the LGIA in 2013, but it took some time to “true-up” certain interconnection costs before the termination notice was filed with FERC.

The contact information for Granite Wind is: RES Americas Inc., Zachary Love, zach.love@res-americas.com.
