The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Feb. 10 accepted a Dec. 24, 2014, filing by Southern California Edison of a Generator Interconnection Agreement (GIA) and a Service Agreement for wholesale distribution service with FPL Energy Cabazon Wind LLC.
The GIA specifies the terms and conditions under which SoCal Edison will engineer, design, construct, own, operate, and maintain the interconnection facilities required to interconnect FPL Energy’s existing 39.75-MW wind facility to SoCal Edison’s distribution system and pursuant to which FPL Energy will pay for such facilities. The Service Agreement covers SoCal Edison’s agreement to provide distribution service for the project to the California Independent System Operator-controlled grid at the 220-kV bus of SoCal Edison’s Devers Substation.
SoCal Edison told FERC that it has been buying the capacity and energy from this facility under a 1984 agreement. An Interconnection Facilities Agreement for the facility is being terminated, to be replaced by these new agreements.
