Lindahl Wind Project LLC filed on Sept. 12 at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for acceptance of its market-based rate schedule under which it will sell electric energy, capacity, and ancillary services at market-based rates.
Lindahl Wind owns a project with a nameplate rating of 150 MW currently under development and located in Williams County, North Dakota. The project will be interconnected with the transmission system owned by the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA) within the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) balancing authority area (BAA).
The project is expected to begin testing in late fall 2016 and to enter commercial operation in late December 2016. The applicant has filed with the commission a notice of its status as an exempt wholesale generator. The full output of the project will be sold under a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Basin Electric Power Cooperative.
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. Enel Green Power International BV is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Enel S.p.A., an Italian joint-stock company.
