Electric Transmission Texas LLC on Feb. 11 filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas an ERCOT Standard Generation Interconnection Agreement, dated Feb. 3, with RE Maplewood LLC for a 500-MW solar project.

The agreement has no specific commercial operation date for this project, with that coming a certain number of months after achievement of other project milestones.

RE Maplewood’s Red Barn Substation will be located in Pecos County approximately eleven miles south of McCamey, Texas. Once the facilities are completed and energized, the Point of Interconnection will be located at RE Maplewood’s dead-end structure inside the substation that terminates ETT’s 345-kV transmission line from ETT’s Bakersfield 345-kV Station.

The project size is a maximum 500 MW (net at the Point of Interconnection). It is to be made up of four hundred thirty (430) inverters at 1.25 MW each, to be installed in a phased build out: Phase A (100 MW); Phase B (200 MW); Phase C (100 MW); and Phase D (100 MW). The project will use Canadian Solar photovoltaic modules.
