The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Jan. 14 accepted an Oct. 30 application from Cameron Ridge II LLC for market-based rate authority so it can commence sales under a new long-term power purchase agreement.
Cameron Ridge II will be acquiring an 11.9-MW wind facility located in Kern County, California, and the limited and discrete interconnection facilities required to interconnect to the transmission system, which include a 21 kV breaker and 21 kV/66 kV generator step-up transformer rated at 20 MV, through a sale of facilities from its affiliate and direct upstream parent, Cameron Ridge LLC, which currently owns and operates this facility (as well as a separate 47.7-MW wind facility).
The subject wind facility is interconnected to the transmission system owned by Southern California Edison and located in the California Independent System Operator balancing authority area. This is a qualifying facility (QF).
Cameron Ridge LLC is a wholly-owned, direct subsidiary of Terra-Gen Wind Power LLC, which is part of Energy Capital Partners.
