Three Peaks Power LLC, which is developing an 80-MW solar project in Utah, on Nov. 8 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a notice of its status as an Exempt Wholesale Generator.
Three Peaks was formed to act as the project company with respect to the ownership and operation of a photovoltaic generating facility located in Cedar City, Utah. Three Peaks owns an approximately 80-MW ground-mounted solar facility occupying 551 acres of land, which is scheduled to generate test power on or around Nov. 14, 2016, and to begin commercial operation on or around Dec. 1, 2016.
Three Peaks will sell its full output at wholesale to PacifiCorp under a long-term power purchase agreement. Three Peaks is interconnected with the transmission system under control of the PacifiCorp East Balancing Authority Area (BAA). The facility includes interconnection facilities that are necessary for the electric output of the unit to be delivered to the grid, but does not provide transmission services for other parties or comprise an integrated transmission system.
The company also filed Nov. 8 with FERC for market-based rate authority.
