Electric Transmission Texas files interconnect for 182-MW Midway Solar project

Electric Transmission Texas LLC filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas on Oct. 4 a Standard Generation Interconnection Agreement with Midway Solar LLC for a 182-MW (net at the Point of Interconnection) project in Pecos County.

The SGIA has no firm commercial operation target date, with that coming a certain time after the achievement of other project milestones.

Midway Solar’s Waymark Substation, needed to support this project, will be located in Pecos County, about 0.5 miles east of the intersection of Ranch Road 1901 and Co-op Road. The substation will interconnect with a 345-kV transmission line that runs for about five miles out of ETT’s Bakersfield 345-kV Station.

The project will be made up of 65 inverters at 2.8 MW (ac) each, fed by the output from Hanwha Q Cells photovoltaic panels.
