SPP files revised interconnect deal for 319-MW Rattlesnake Creek wind project

The Southwest Power Pool on July 8 filed with FERC an executed Generator Interconnection Agreement with Rattlesnake Creek Wind Project LLC and interconnecting transmission owner Nebraska Public Power District.

This First Revised Rattlesnake GIA modifies and supersedes the GIA among the parties that the commission accepted in December 2014.

Rattlesnake plans to construct a 319.15-MW wind facility, which will consist of 117 General Electric 1.715-MW wind turbines and 65 General Electric 1.85-MW wind turbines. The parties lately have agreed to update Appendices A-C, E and F of the original GIA, leading to this new revision.

The Point of Interconnection for this project is the 230-kV bus of NPPD’s Dixon County 230-kV substation addition on the Twin Church–Hoskins 230-kV line. The project’s commercial operation target date is Dec. 1, 2018.
