Siemens turbines dropped from Happy Whiteface Wind project in Texas

Sharyland Utilities LP on Aug. 1 filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas a second amendment to a July 2015 interconnection agreement with Happy Whiteface Wind LLC.

This amendent includes a change in the section in the Standard Generation Interconnection Agreement that describes the project and its interconnection to the Sharyland system. The change involves the deletion of Siemens-produced 2.3 MW wind turbines, leaving only General Electric 2.3-MW turbines. There would be 68 turbines.

The project’s Point of Interconnection is in Deaf Smith County, Texas, on Sharyland’s Windmill Substation.

Sharyland Utilities filed in August 2015 at the Texas commission a first amendment to the Standard Generation Interconnection Agreement with Happy Whiteface Wind. The primary change in that amendment was that the commercial operation target date was moved up to Aug. 1, 2016.

The contact information for Happy Whiteface Wind is in Edmond, Okla., phone 405-850-6685, mcalpinejl@chermacenergy.com.

That is contact information for Chermac Energy, which says on its website that it began life as an oil and gas company.
