Cameron Ridge II LLC on Oct. 30 filed at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for market-based rate authority so it can commence sales under a new long-term power purchase agreement.
Cameron Ridge II will be acquiring an 11.9-MW wind facility located in Kern County, California, and the limited and discrete interconnection facilities required to interconnect to the transmission system, which include a 21 kV breaker and 21 kV/66 kV generator step-up transformer rated at 20 MV, through a sale of facilities from its affiliate and direct upstream parent, Cameron Ridge LLC, which currently owns and operates this facility (as well as a separate 47.7-MW wind facility).
The subject wind facility is interconnected to the transmission system owned by Southern California Edison (SCE) and located in the California Independent System Operator balancing authority area (BAA). This is a qualifying facility (QF).
Cameron Ridge LLC is a wholly-owned, direct subsidiary of Terra-Gen Wind Power LLC, which is part of Energy Capital Partners.
