Southern California Edison ends power purchase deal with Cameron Ridge II wind farm

Southern California Edison on Feb. 12 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a Generator Interconnection Agreement with Cameron Ridge II LLC, which controls a small wind project that has been selling power to Southern California Edison under a contract that is now being terminated.

Cameron Ridge II owns an 11.9-MW (net) wind facility named the Cameron Ridge II Project, located in Mojave, California. The project is an existing interconnected generation resource interconnected to SCE’s system via a tap on the Flowind segment of its Windhub-Dutchwind-Flowind 66-kV distribution line. This facility is made up of 17 NEG Micon NM700 wind turbines.

The project company has been selling the facility’s output to SCE under an amended power purchase agreement (PPA), subject to the jurisdiction of the California Public Utilities Commission, dated April 16, 1985. The PPA includes an interconnection facilities agreement (IFA). The parties have agreed to terminate the PPA, including the IFA, effective Jan. 14, 2016, with the IFA replaced by this new GIA.

A project contact is: Darren Kelly, Director Business Management, Cameron Ridge II LLC, dkelly@terra-gen.com.
