Electric Transmission Texas files interconnect for 250-MW Hidalgo Wind project

Electric Transmission Texas LLC filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas on Oct. 30 an updated Generation Interconnection Agreement with Hidalgo Wind LLC for a 250-MW wind project.

The agreement doesn’t establish a firm commercial date for the project, with that date based on when prior milestones are achieved. This is a 250-MW project, to be made up of 125 Vestas V110 wind turbines of 2 MW each. The project developer will establish the Los Mirasoles Substation in Hidalgo County, 3.5 miles west of McCook, Texas. The project will then interconnect from there into ETT’s 345-kV Pomelo Station.

The project contact information is for an EDP Renewables office in Houston, phone 713-265-0350.
