Lincoln Clean Energy’s 253-MW Dermott Wind project to operate in Q4 2017

Dermott Wind LLC on Sept. 16 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a notice of self-certification as an exempt wholesale generator related to its in-construction, 253-MW project in Texas.

Dermott is engaged in the business of developing, owning and operating an approximately 253-MW wind facility located in Scurry County, Texas. Dermott is controlled by Lincoln Clean Energy LLC, which is engaged in developing, owning and operating wind and solar generating facilities and other clean power technologies through special purpose project companies.

All of the Dermott facility’s output is to be sold into the wholesale energy market administered by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). The facility is currently under construction and is expected to achieve commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2017.

The facility will be interconnected with the transmission system of Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC within ERCOT, the EWG notice said. The facility will not sell electricity outside of ERCOT.

Notable is that Oncor Electric Delivery filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas on Aug. 19 a Standard Generation Interconnection Agreement with Dermott Wind LLC for a 253-MW project. The project’s Point of Interconnection is in Scurry County, at the Dermott Switching Station. The switching station site is about 11 miles northwest of Snyder, and about 2.75 miles north of State Hwy. 84, adjacent to County Rd. 2127. This project is to be made up of 110 General Electric wind turbines sized at 2.3 MW each.
