Interconnect deal filed for 200-MW Live Oak Wind Project in Texas

Electric Transmission Texas LLC on Nov. 3 filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas a Standard Generation Interconnection Agreement with Live Oak Wind Project LLC for a 200-MW wind project.

The SGIA doesn’t have a firm commercial operation target date for the project. That would come a given amount of time after the achievement of a prior project milestone.

This project would interconnect through Live Oak Wind Project’s Wilson Ranch Substation in Schleicher County, Texas, about 13 miles north of the town of Eldorado. The Point of Interconnection is to be at the Big Hill 345-kV Station of Electric Transmission Texas. This wind project will be made up of 87 Siemens 2.3-MW Type 4 turbines.

A listed project contact is: Infinity Wind Power, Tom Whitaker, 3760 State Street, Suite 200, Santa Barbara, CA 93105, phone 805-452-6318, That is contact information for Infinity Renewables, which lists a 200-MW Live Oak wind project on its website as an in-development facility.
