Southern California Edison revises interconnect deal for 10-MW solar project

Southern California Edison on Sept. 17 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a revised version of a Small Generator Interconnection Agreement for the 10-MW SEPV Palmdale East solar photovoltaic facility in Palmdale, California.

FERC had accepted the initial version of the SGIA in December 2013. Southern California Edison said revisions were needed to adjust land rights related to the interconnection facilities.

The project interconnects at the utility’s new Sparkle Substation. The SGIA calls for a commercial operation date of April 3 of this year.

A project contact listed in the agreement is: SEPV Palmdale East LLC, Attention: Dang Dang, 2 Embarcadero Center, Suite 410, San Francisco, California 94111, Phone: (415) 872-0766, ddang@spower.com.

That is contact information for Sustainable Power Group, which says about itself on its website: “sPower is a leading independent power producer (IPP) which owns and/or operates more than 150 utility and distributed electrical generation assets in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Indiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and Utah.”
