PJM files revised interconnect for Beech Ridge wind project in West Virginia

PJM Interconnection on Feb. 8 filed at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a revised version of an interconnection service agreement entered into with transmission owner Monongahela Power and Beech Ridge Energy II LLC.

On May 1, 2015, PJM Interconnection submitted two executed interconnection service agreements entered into among PJM, Monongahela Power and two separate owners of the Beech Ridge Wind Farm: Beech Ridge Energy LLC and Beech Ridge Energy II LLC. By delegated order dated June 10, 2015, the commission accepted the agreements.

It was then brought to PJM’s attention by the customer that the version of agreement for the Beech Ridge Energy II project that was filed with and accepted by the commission was not the version executed by the parties. Accordingly, PJM is submitting the correct version and requests that the commission replace the May 1 Beech Ridge II ISA with the correct version.

The provisions in the May 1 Beech Ridge II ISA that differ with the Beech Ridge II ISA include:

  • Completion of Substantial Site Work – April 1, 2015, was revised to Jan. 4, 2016;
  • Delivery of Major Electric Equipment – Oct. 1, 2015, was revised to July 4, 2016; and
  • Commercial Operation – Dec. 1, 2015, was revised to Sept. 4, 2016.

The Beech Ridge Wind Farm is located in Greenbrier and Nicholas counties, West Virginia. The Maximum Facility Output of the entire facility is 186 MW. The entire facility will consist of up to one-hundred and three (103) 1.5-MW General Electric wind turbines and a storage array consisting of up to eighteen 1.8-MW battery blocks.

The contact information shows the project company is affiliated with Invenergy LLC.
