The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on March 4 accepted a Jan. 7 filing by American Electric Power Service Corp., on behalf of its affiliate AEP Texas North, of a fully executed standard generation interconnection agreement with RE Roserock LLC.

The agreement provides for the electrical interconnection of a planned 157.7-MW solar photovoltaic facility. The facility’s Clovis Substation is to be located in Pecos County approximately 25 miles west of Fort Stockton, Texas. Once the permanent facilities are completed and energized, the permanent Point of Interconnection will be located approximately 4.5 miles from AEP Texas North’s Barrilla Junction 138-kV Station.

RE Roserock is an affiliate of Recurrent Energy Development Holdings LLC and Recurrent Energy LLC out of San Francisco.

RE Roserock on Jan. 20 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a notice of self-certification of Exempt Wholesale Generator status. Roserock said in that filing that it anticipates that the facility will commence commercial operation by July 2016. All of the output from the facility will be sold exclusively at wholesale under a 20-year power purchase agreement with Austin Energy.
