Different turbines added to 250-MW Chapman Ranch Wind I project in Texas

Electric Transmission Texas LLC on June 17 filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas a Second Amended and Restated Standard Generation Interconnection Agreement with Chapman Ranch Wind I LLC.

The revised agreement makes various changes to the original SGIA, including the size and number of wind turbines to be installed. Said the filing: “The Parties desire to amend and restate the First Amendment as set forth herein for the purpose of 1) changing Section 4 of Exhibit ‘C’, from 125 units at 2.0 MW each to 81 units at 3.075 MW each; and 2) changing Section 5 of Exhibit ‘C’, from Vestas V110 2.0 MW wind turbines to Acciona 3.075 MW wind turbines; and 3) updating Exhibit ‘C-1’ to reflect the breaker numbers; and 4) to make certain other changes throughout the Agreement.”

The agreement has no specific commercial operation target date, with that date timed on completion of prior project steps.

The project developer will build the Santa Cruz Substation for this project, to be located about 16 miles east of Bishop in Neuces County, Texas. The project will interconnect into ETT’s Nelson Sharpe 138-kV line.

The project contact information is for Apex Clean Energy out of Charlottesville, Virginia.
