Sharyland Utilities LP on Sep. 9 filed with the Texas Public Utility Commission an amendment to a 2015 interconnection agreement with Happy Whiteface Wind LLC that, among other things, changes the name of the project development company and the generating capacity of the wind turbines to be used.
The new project company name is Astra Wind LLC. The filing indicates this was a name change for the existing company and isn’t a new developer.
This change, called Amendment No. 3, also replaces the prior 68 General Electric 2.3-MW wind turbines, with 2.4-MW turbines. After testing, GE decided it could upgrade the 2.3-MW turbines through new software to the 2.4-MW level. The number of turbines remains at 68.
Another change is that a scheduled commercial operation date of Aug. 1, 2016, has now been pushed back to Dec. 31, 2016.
The project’s Point of Interconnection is in Deaf Smith County, at Sharyland’s Windmill Substation.
The contact information for Happy Whiteface Wind is in Edmond, Okla., phone 405-850-6685, firstname.lastname@example.org.
