Southern Company Services on July 14 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a notice of termination of the Small Generator Interconnection Agreement with GCL Lincoln Power LLC, dated April 24, 2015, for the 20-MW GCL Lincoln Power Project.

Said Southern: “On September 17, 2015, GCL Solar Energy, Inc., the corporate parent of GCL Lincoln, notified Southern Companies that it wanted to terminate the Interconnection Agreement. The parties discussed GCL Lincoln’s outstanding obligations and that they would need to be resolved prior to a notice of termination of the Interconnection Agreement being filed at FERC. Southern Companies determined that it had incurred $202,544 of actual cost, including labor, materials and interest and, on March 1, 2016, sent an invoice to GCL Lincoln. On June 3, 2016, GCL Lincoln paid the invoice. Thus, there are no outstanding obligations remaining.”

The agreement covered a 20-MW solar photovoltaic project in Lincoln County, Georgia. The Point of Interconnection was to be where the generator tie line terminated on the bus of the Petersburg Road Substation.
