Exelon Wind files registration for 78-MW Sendero Wind project in Texas

Exelon Wind LLC filed on June 15 at the Public Utility Commission an amendment to a power producer registration covering the 78-MW Sendero Wind Energy LLC project in Jim Hogg and Zapata counties in Texas.

This facility would interconnect into the AEP Texas Central system in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas region. The filing adds little other information about the project.

A company contact listed in the filing is: David Dardis, Vice President & Deputy General Counsel, 100 Constellation Way, Suite 500C, Baltimore, MD 21202, david.dardis@constellation.com, Phone 410-470-3416, Fax 410-470-2600.

American Electric Power Service Corp., on behalf of its affiliate AEP Texas Central, submitted to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in October 2014 a Service Agreement under its Open Access Transmission Service Tariff for a 78-MW wind project. This was an amended and restated ERCOT standard generation interconnection agreement dated Sept. 19 between AEP Texas Central and Sendero Wind Energy. The parties originally entered into a standard generation interconnection agreement effective June 26, 2013, which provided for the electrical interconnection of a future 78-MW wind facility.

Subsequent to the original agreement, the parties agreed to amend and restate it by changing the scheduled trial operation date from Jan. 31, 2014, to April 31, 2015, and the scheduled commercial operation date from Feb. 28, 2014, to Aug. 31, 2015. The parties also agreed to amend the agreement by changing the type of wind-generating units from the Seimens SWT 30-108 model to the Vestas V110–2.0 MW and changing the number and size of the units from 34 to 39 units and from 2.3 MW to 2.0 MW each and make certain other changes throughout the agreement.
