Revised interconnect deal filed for 360-MW Electra Wind project in Texas

Electric Transmission Texas LLC filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas on Nov. 12 its Amendment No. 1 to the ERCOT Standard Generation Interconnection Agreement, dated May 1, with Electra Wind LLC for a 360-MW project.

The amendment covers a series of changes in the original agreement, including some changes to the projecgt schedule. The schedule is based on when prior steps are achieved and has no firm dates.

Electra Wind’s Digby Substation will be located in Wilbarger County approximately two miles south of Oklaunion, Texas. Once the facilities are completed and energized, the Point of Interconnection will be located at the dead-end structure inside ETT’s Riley Station that terminates Electra Wind’s 345-kV transmission line from the substation.

This wind farm will have a nominal 360-MW capacity, made up of 180 General Electric wind turbines at 2 MW each
