FERC accepts interconnect for 20-MW Duke solar project in Georgia

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Oct. 13 accepted an Aug. 19 filing by Southern Company Services of an executed Small Generator Interconnection Agreement with Duke Energy Renewables Solar LLC.

In August 2013, the project company submitted an interconnection request to this Southern Co. (NYSE: SO) subsidiary to interconnect a solar photovoltaic (PV), inverter-based generator array. The facility is to be located in Calhoun County, Ga., and will have a nominal net capacity of 20 MW at the Point of Interconnection.

The Point of Interconnection will be where the generator tie line terminates on the bus of the IC-314 Interconnecting Substation. The Point of Change of Ownership is where Duke’s generator tie line terminates on Georgia Power‘s dead-end structure at the IC-314 Interconnecting Substation. Georgia Power is also a subsidiary of Southern Co.

The project’s targeted commercial operation date is June 30, 2018.
