Allegany Wind terminates interconnect for wind project in New York

The New York Independent System Operator filed on March 6 at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a notice of cancellation of a Large Generator Interconnection Agreement with transmission owner Niagara Mohawk Power d/b/a National Grid and wind project developer Allegany Wind LLC.

The now-terminated agreement stated that Allegany Wind was constructing a 72.5 MW wind power facility in the Town of Olean, Cattaraugus County, New York. The agreement provided that the facility would consist of 29 Nordex N90 2.5 MW wind turbines with a Point of Interconnection on National Grid’s Homer Hill-Dugan Road #155 115-kV transmission line. The agreement was accepted by the commission in December 2012.

Allegany Wind provided a letter to the NYISO and National Grid dated Feb. 27 requesting termination of the agreement effective May 28, 2015. The letter, on the letterhad of EverPower Wind Holdings, didn’t give a reason for requested termination.
