EDF’s 184-MW Kelly Creek Wind project in Illinois to go commercial in December

Kelly Creek Wind LLC on Nov. 21 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a rate schedule for Reactive Supply and Voltage Control from Generation Sources Service for its nearly-operational wind project in Illinois.

This Rate Schedule specifies the revenue requirement for Reactive Supply and Voltage Control from Generation Sources Service from the Kelly Creek wind turbine generating facility.

Kelly Creek is currently partially owned by EDF Renewable Asset Holdings Inc. (EDF-RAH) and EDF-RE US Development LLC (EDF-RED), which is owned 95% by EDF Renewable Development Inc., and 5% by EDF-RAH. Both EDF Renewable Development and EDF-RAH are wholly owned by EDF Renewable Energy Inc.

Kelly Creek is developing and will own and operate a 184-MW (nameplate) wind facility and related generation interconnection facilities to be located in Kankakee County, Ford County and Iroquois County, Illinois. The Kelly Creek Facility consists of 92 Vestas wind turbine generators, each with a nameplate rating of 2 MW.

The facility is in the final stages of construction and is scheduled to commence commercial operation in December 2016. It is interconnected to transmission facilities owned by Commonwealth Edison and operated by PJM Interconnection. While the total nameplate capacity of the Kelly Creek Facility is 184 MW, the maximum allowed facility output at the point of interconnection is 175 MW, the company noted.
