64-MW Chisholm View Wind Project II to go commercial in December 2016

Chisholm View Wind Project II LLC on Sept. 29 requested that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issue an order that accepts its market-based rate schedule and FERC Electric Tariff, under which it will sell electric energy, capacity, and ancillary services at market-based rates.

Applicant owns a wind project with a nameplate rating of 64 MW currently under development and located in Grant and Garfield counties, Oklahoma. The project will be interconnected with the transmission system owned by Oklahoma Gas & Electric within the Southwest Power Pool balancing authority area.

Chisholm View expects the project to begin testing in late fall 2016 and to enter commercial operation in late December 2016. The company has filed with the commission a notice of its status as an exempt wholesale generator. It is committed to sell the full output of the project under a 25-year power purchase agreement with Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corp.

Applicant is a party to a Shared Facilities Agreement with Chisholm View Wind Project LLC. Under the SFA, Chisholm View Wind Project LLC will lease certain electrical interconnection equipment to the applicant, necessary to reliably connect applicant’s project to the transmission system owned by Oklahoma Gas & Electric.

The sole member of the applicant is Enel Kansas LLC, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Enel Green North America Inc., which in turn is wholly owned by Enel Green Power International BV, a company organized under the laws of the Netherlands.
