Apex’s Patriot Wind Farm registers 178-MW project in Texas

Patriot Wind Farm LLC, which is working on a 178.35-MW wind farm project, on Nov. 17 filed a registration statement as a power generator with the Public Utility Commission of Texas.

The project would interconnect into the American Electric Power system in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas region in Nueces County, near Bishop, Texas. No indication is given in the Nov. 17 filing about when the project will go into operation.

The contact information for the company shown in the filing is: Patriot Wind Farm LLC c/o Apex Clean Energy, 310 4th St. NE, Suite 200, Charlottesville, VA 22902, William Pezalla, bill.pezalla@apexcleanenergy.com, Transmission Manager, Phone: 434-282-2107.

Patriot Wind Farm LLC on Aug. 5 had filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a notice of self-certification as an exempt wholesale generator. Patriot Wind said it will own and operate an approximately 180-MW (nameplate) wind facility to be located in Nueces County. That filing also doesn’t say when this project would start producing.

American Electric Power Service Corp., on behalf of AEP Texas Central, had in July 2013 filed with FERC an interconnection deal for this project.
