American Electric Power Service Corp., on behalf of its affiliate AEP Texas North Co. (TNC), filed on May 4 at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a copy of a fully executed ERCOT Standard Generation Interconnection Agreement dated April 9 with OCI Alamo 7 LLC.
The agreement provides for the electrical interconnection of a planned 114-MW solar facility. OCI Alamo 7’s Solara Substation will be located in Haskell County, Texas, approximately 12.5 miles northeast of Stamford,. Once the permanent facilities are completed and energized, the permanent Point of Interconnection will be located at the dead-end structure inside TNC’s Hendrick Station that terminates the development company’s 138-kV transmission line from the Substation. The solar facility is planned to go into commercial operation by Dec. 31, 2016.
This is the latest in a series of such projects being developed by OCI Solar Power.
- OCI Alamo 6 LLC, which is developing a 116-MW solar photovoltaic project, on March 23 filed a registration statement as a power generator with the Public Utility Commission of Texas. That project is located in Pecos County on Frye Road at Bakersfield, Texas, and will interconnect with the Lower Colorado River Authority. It is called the West Texas Solar project.
- South Texas Electric Cooperative (STEC) on March 16 filed with the Texas commission an ERCOT Standard Generator Interconnection Agreement between STEC and OCI Alamo 5 LLC. This agreement covers the 100-MW Downie Ranch Solar photovoltaic project, which has a Point of Interconnection at the Downie substation. The project has a scheduled commercial operation date of Nov. 2, 2015.
