Lakeland Solar Energy ups size of Georgia solar facility

Lakeland Solar Energy LLC filed a March 19 notice with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission about a change related to its notice of self-certification for exempt wholesale generator (EWG) status that it initially filed with the commission in November 2013.

“This notice is being filed to notify the Commission that the size of the electric generation facilities owned by Lakeland have increased,” said the filing. “The Lakeland Self-Certification stated that it would own and operate solar powered electric generation facilities of approximately 2 MW located in Lakeland, Georgia, comprised of 2 solar array projects, each approximately 1 MW, and connected to Georgia Power Company’s (‘Georgia Power’) distribution system (defined as the ‘Lakeland Facilities’ in the Lakeland Self-Certification).

“Lakeland also owns an additional approximately 0.807 MW solar generation project, which began generating electricity on February 17, 2015, that is now part of the Lakeland Facilities and that is connected to the Georgia Power’s distribution system. Thus, the size of the Lakeland Facilities has increased. Lakeland sells electric energy and capacity produced from the Lakeland Facilities exclusively at wholesale.”

A number of project subsidiaries of Invenergy Investment Co. LLC, which owns Lakeland, on March 19 separately filed a notice with FERC about the uprate of the Lakeland project.
