FERC accepts interconnect deals for 250 MW of Trishe Wind projects

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Sept. 28 accepted a July 31 filing by PJM Interconnection of two executed interconnection service agreements (ISAs) entered into with Trishe Wind Ohio LLC and transmission owner AEP Ohio Transmission Co. Inc.

Trishe Wind submitted two separate interconnection requests and requested two separate ISAs for each facility owned by one entity associated with the Trishe Wind project. Both ISAs facilitate the interconnection to the PJM transmission system of the entire Trishe Wind Farm. Each ISA provides for the phased-in nature of this project.

  • The Trishe Wind (V1-011) ISA facilitates the interconnection to the PJM system of a 100-MW wind facility located in Paulding County, Ohio.
  • The Trishe Wind (V1-012) ISA facilitates the interconnection to the PJM system of a 150-MW wind facility located in Paulding County, Ohio.

The V1-011 facility is to be made up of 59 General Electric 1.7-MW wind turbine generators, or 50 Gamesa G114-MW wind turbine generators or 50 Vestas V110 2-MW wind turbine generators. On or before Dec. 31, 2015, Trishe Wind must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units of this phase.

V1-012 has the same commercial operation target date. It is to be made up of 89 General Electric 1.7 MW turbines or 75 Gamesa G114 2-MW turbines or 75 Vestas V110 2-MW turbines.

A project contact listed in the agreements is: Trishe Wind Ohio LLC, 4475 Trinity Mills Road, #704108, Dallas, TX 75370, Attention: Matthias Weigel.
