SunEdison amends Texas registration for 150-MW Route 66 Wind project

Route 66 Wind Power LLC, an affiliate of SunEdison with a 150-MW wind project located at Farm-to-Market Road 2161 in Carson County, Texas, on May 4 filed an amended registration statement as a power generation company with the Public Utility Commission of Texas.

This project would interconnect with Sharyland Utilities. Said the form about the intent for this company: “Route 66 Wind Power, LLC will provide electricity to the ERCOT wholesale electric market.”

Said the filing about the reason for the amendment: “Contact previously referenced in Section B.2. no longer with the company. First Wind Holdings was acquired by SunEdison, Inc. and sold all interest in the facility to Corridor Energy LLC.”

A company contact is: Rob Robertson, Director of Electric Regulatory Compliance, 179 Lincoln Street, Suite 500, Boston, MA 02111,, Phone: 617-960-9509, Fax: 617-960-2889.

First Wind had announced in February 2014 that it had obtained $206 million in financing for its 150-MW Route 66 Wind project in Armstrong and Carson counties, Texas.
