Exelon’s Sendero Wind aims for Dec. 18 commercial operation of Texas project

The Sendero Wind Energy LLC affiliate of Exelon Wind LLC said in a Sept. 29 filing with the Public Utility Commission of Texas that its 78-MW wind project is due for commercial operation around Dec. 18 of this year.

The Sept. 29 filing was a registration as a renewable energy generator. The project is made up of a series of 2-MW General Electric wind turbines located at a site in northern Jim Hogg County.

A listed company contact is: Lynda Fohn, Assistant General Counsel, Exelon, 1221 Lamar Street, #850 Houston, TX 77010, 512-619-7859.

To account for a change in project schedule and a new type of wind turbine, American Electric Power Service Corp., on behalf of its affiliate AEP Texas Central Co., filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Aug. 5 an amended and restated standard generation interconnection agreement with Sendero Wind Energy.

AEP wrote: “The Parties desire to amend and restate the First Amended and Restated Agreement for the purpose of updating Exhibit ‘B’, Time Schedule, by changing the Schedule Trial Operation Date from April 30, 2015 to October 1, 2015 and the Schedule Commercial Operation Date from August 31, 2015 to December 31, 2015. The Parties also desire to amend and restate the First Amended and Restated Agreement for the purpose of updating Exhibit ‘C’, Interconnection Details, by changing Section 5, Type of Generating Units from Vestas V110–2.0 MW to GE–2.0 MW wind.”
