Shannon Wind registers 204-MW project with Texas commission

Shannon Wind LLC filed on March 13 at the Texas Public Utility Commission its registration as a power generator related to its 204-MW wind project.

Attached to the filing was the company’s May 2014 notice to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of its self-certification as an exempt wholesale generator. This wind facility is located at 4130 Cobb Road near Windthorst in Clay County, Texas, and it will be interconnected with the transmission system of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) through transmission owner Oncor. The EWG notice from last year said that the projected date of initial production of energy for sale is July 2015, with the registration statement not offering a new date.
