Deerfield Wind seeks EWG status for 149-MW project in Michigan

Deerfield Wind Energy LLC on Sept. 22 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a notice of self-certification of Exempt Wholesale Generator status based on its development, ownership and operation of an approximately 149-MW wind facility in Huron County, Michigan.

The company’s sole member is Deerfield Holdco LLC, which is wholly owned by Deerfield Wind SponsorCo LLC. Deerfield Wind SponsorCo has two members with equal 50% interests: Deerfield Holdings 1 LLC and Algonquin Power (Deerfield Holdings) Inc. Contact information is for Algonquin Power in Ontario, Canada.

Under a Generator Interconnection Agreement filed with the commission in June 2015, the wind facility will interconnect with the Midcontinent Independent System Operator system. The applicant entered into a power purchase agreement with Wolverine Power Supply Cooperative, under which Wolverine will purchase 100% of all energy, renewable energy credits and installed capacity produced by or available from the facility. Power from the facility will be transmitted to the Point of Interconnection over an eight-mile, 120 kV generator lead line.
