Revised interconnect deal filed for 199-MW Waverly Wind project in Kansas

The Southwest Power Pool on Nov. 10 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Generator Interconnection Agreement with Waverly Wind Farm LLC and interconnecting transmission owner Westar Energy for a 199-MW project in Kansas.

This Third Revised Waverly Wind GIA modifies and supersedes the second GIA that the commission accepted in October 2014.

Waverly Wind plans a 199-MW wind farm consisting of 90 Gamesa G114 2.1 MW wind turbine generators and five Gamesa G114 2.0 MW wind generators for a total of 199 MW to be interconnected to Westar’s transmission system. The facility’s point of interconnection will be a new 345-kV ring bus substation on the Wolf Creek-to-LaCygne 345-kV line, near Waverly, Kansas.

The parties have agreed to update Appendices A and C from the October 2014 version of the GIA to reflect a change in wind generator types and Appendix B to reflect a change in construction dates. The projected commercial operation date for the project under the new version of the GIA is still Nov. 30 of this year.
