Revised interconnect deal filed for 230-MW Horse Creek Wind project in Texas

Electric Transmission Texas on Sept. 25 filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas a First Amended and Restated ERCOT Standard Generation Interconnection Agreement, dated Sept. 21, with Horse Creek Wind LLC.

ETT and Horse Creek Wind originally entered into an ERCOT Standard Generation Interconnection Agreement dated May 1. The developer’s Panadero Substation will be located approximately 16 miles east of Haskell, Texas. Once the permanent facilities are completed and energized, the permanent Point of Interconnection will be located at the dead-end structure inside ETT’s Smoky Hill 345-kV Station that terminates Horse Creek Wind 345-kV transmission line from the substation.

This is a nominal 230-MW facility comprised of 100 General Electric turbines at 2.3 MW each. No specific commercial operation date is mentioned in the agreement, with that date dependent on when certain steps are taken in the interconnection process.

A project contact is: Horse Creek Wind LLC, Neil O’Donovan, 401 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 501, Chicago, IL 60611, 78403, phone 602-321-6878,
