Oncor files interconnect deals for 253-MW and 242-MW wind projects in Texas

Filed with the Texas Public Utility Commission were interconnect deals for two large wind projects of Lincoln Clean Energy that would have staggered commercial operation dates but the same interconnection point.

Oncor Electric Delivery Co. LLC filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas on Aug. 19 a Standard Generation Interconnection Agreement with Dermott Wind LLC for a 253-MW project that is due in commercial operation on Aug. 30, 2017. The project’s Point of Interconnection is in Scurry County, Texas, at the Dermott Switching Station. The switching station site is about 11 miles northwest of Snyder, and about 2.75 miles north of State Hwy. 84, adjacent to County Rd. 2127. This is a 253-MW project to be made up of 110 General Electric wind turbines sized at 2.3 MW each.

Also, Oncor Electric Delivery filed at the commission a similar agreement with Coyote Wind LLC for a project that is due in commercial operation on Aug. 30, 2018. The agreement covers a 242.5-MW wind farm that will be composed of 97 General Electric wind turbines of 2.5 MW each. The Coyote Wind project’s Point of Interconnection will also be at the Dermott Switching Station.
