PJM revises interconnect deal for EverPower wind farm in Pennsylvania

On March 16, PJM Interconnection filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Interconnection Service Agreement with Patton Wind Farm LLC and transmission owner Pennsylvania Electric.

This deal replaces a prior ISA between the parties. Under the original deal, the Maximum Facility Output for this wind farm was 30.6 MW. Due to a change in the equipment configuration under this new ISA, the Maximum Facility was modified to 30 MW to reflect the capability of the reconfigured equipment. The specifications in a section of the ISA have been modified to reflect a change in the equipment configuration from seventeen 1.8-MW Vestas V90 wind turbines to 15 Gamesa G97 2-MW turbines. This covers the Patton Wind Farm in Cambria County, Pa.

“The Patton Wind ISA facilitates the interconnection to the PJM transmission system of 30 MW located in Cambria County, Pennsylvania,” said the filing. “The Interconnection Customer submitted this Interconnection Request to increase the Capacity Interconnection Rights in the amount of 1.35 MW from 3.9 MW to 5.25 MW. The Interconnection Customer will be awarded the additional 1.35 MW of Capacity Interconnection Rights commencing June 1, 2018. The Interconnection Customer may be provided an additional 1.35 MW of interim Capacity Interconnection Rights during the interim period commencing on the effective date of this ISA and ending May 31, 2018.

A project contact is: Patton Wind Farm LLC c/o EverPower Wind Holdings, 1251 Waterfront Place, 3rd Floor, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, Attention: Charles Vogel.

The EverPower website said the Patton Wind project became operational in 2012.
