FERC accepts interconnect for 20-MW Peach Solar Energy 2 project in Georgia

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Oct. 7 accepted an Aug. 25 filing by Southern Company Services of an executed Small Generator Interconnection Agreement dated Aug. 10 with Peach Solar Energy 3 LLC for the 20-MW Peach Solar Energy 2 project.

In March 2013, Peach Solar submitted an interconnection request to Southern to interconnect a solar photovoltaic (PV), inverter-based generator array located in Dooly County, Ga. The project has 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 Vienna Primary Substation.

The project will tie into the Georgia Power system, with Georgia Power, like Southern Company Services, being a subsidiary of Southern Co. (NYSE: SO).

The project’s targeted commercial operation date is Dec. 1, 2017.

A project contact is: Peach Solar Energy 3 LLC, Attention: Joshua Fields, 2425 Olympic Boulevard, Suite 500 East, Santa Monica, CA 90404. Phone: 310-315-2280, Fax: 310-315-2201. josh.fields@solarreserve.com.

Said the SolarReserve website: “SolarReserve is a leading global developer of utility-scale solar power projects, which include electricity generation by solar thermal energy and photovoltaic panels.”
