The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Aug. 31 accepted a July 5 filing from Terrapin Energy LLC of its market-based rate tariff and granted the company the authority to sell electric energy, capacity, and ancillary services at market-based rates.
Said the FERC approval: “You state that Terrapin Energy is constructing a 29.4 megawatt (MW) wind-powered electric generating facility located in Huron County, Michigan.” The project, called the Big Turtle II Wind Farm, is a qualifying facility (QF) under the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978, as amended.
The project will interconnect to transmission facilities owned by International Transmission and operated by the Midcontinent Independent System Operator. None of the facility’s capacity is subject to long-term agreement, and the company intends to sell the entire net electric output at wholesale into the MISO market. The project has an expected in-service date of Sept. 1, 2016.
Terrapin Energy is a wholly owned subsidiary of GFS US Holding LLC, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of GFS Holding Inc.
