Kelly Creek Wind files EWG notice for 184-MW project in Illinois

Kelly Creek Wind LLC on June 6 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a notice of self-certification that it is an exempt wholesale generator based on its ownership and operation of a 183.7-MW (nameplate) wind facility to be located in Ford and Kankakee counties, Illinois.

Kelly Creek is developing and will own and operate the facility. When completed, the wind farm will interconnect to the transmission system owned by Commonwealth Edison and operated by PJM Interconnection. All of the output of the facility will be sold exclusively at wholesale.

Kelly Creek is indirectly, wholly-owned by EDF Renewable Energy, which develops, builds, operates and manages renewable energy projects throughout North America.

PJM in November 2014 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed interconnection service agreement with Kelly Creek Wind Farm LLC and Commonwealth Edison for this project.
