PacifiCorp does preliminary grid deal for 20-MW Pavant Solar III project

PacifiCorp on Jan. 27 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an Engineering and Procurement Agreement (“E&P Agreement”) with Pavant Solar III LLC covering grid interconnection work for a 20-MW project in Utah.

In order for Pavant Solar to obtain interconnection service, it will be necessary for PacifiCorp to construct certain facilities. To advance implementation of the project, Pavant Solar requests that PacifiCorp begin certain activities related to the project prior to the execution of a Small Generator Interconnection Agreement (SGIA). To cover the work during the period prior to the execution of the SGIA, the parties have entered into the E&P Agreement, dated Jan. 21. 

Pavant Solar III is in the process of developing a site that includes lands in Millard County, Utah, for a 20-MW project that is covered by queue request Q684.

A project contact is: William D. Plank P.E, Pavant Solar III LLC, 1710 29th Street, Suite 1068, Boulder, CO 80301, bplank@juwiamericas.com.

Notable is that PSEG Solar Source announced Jan. 20 that it has acquired ownership interests in two solar facilities from juwi Inc.: a 3.9 MW (dc) project in Livermore, California; and a 62.7 MW (dc) project in Millard County, Utah. The PSEG Pavant II Solar Energy Center will be located on 415 acres about 110 miles south of Salt Lake City. When completed, the 62.7 MW (dc) facility will represent Solar Source’s largest solar facility. It has a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with PacifiCorp and its commercial operations are expected to commence at the end of the year.
