FERC accepts end of interconnects for 300-MW North Carolina wind project

FERC on Sept. 12 accepted the Aug. 9 filing by PJM Interconnection of a notice of the cancellation of two Interconnection Service Agreements from 2012 with interconnecting transmission owner Virginia Electric and Power and two separate owners of the Hales Lake Energy Center; Hales Lake Energy LLC and Hales Lake Energy II LLC.

"The Hales Lake ISAs are being cancelled because the owners decided not to move forward with the interconnection project," FERC noted in the Sept. 12 letter. There is a 30-day deadline from here for any rehearing request.

This wind project has been under PJM Queue Position #W3-066. The Hales Lake Energy Center was to be located in Camden and Currituck counties, North Carolina. The Maximum Facility Output of the entire wind farm was to be 300 MW, made up of two hundred 1.62-MW General Electric wind turbines.

The contact information in the 2012 ISAs and the Aug. 9 termination letter is for Invenergy LLC.
