The Midcontinent ISO on Oct. 31 filed with FERC a Generator Interconnection Agreement with MidAmerican Energy as both the wind project developer and interconnecting transmission owner.
MISO has designated this as Project No. J498 in its interconnection queue. The commercial operation target date is Dec. 15, 2017. The Point of Interconnection (POI) will be at MidAmerican’s 345 kV Beaver Creek Substation. The project site is northwest of Ogden in Boone County, Iowa.
Under this GIA, MidAmerican will install a 340-MW net facility, with all studies performed at or below these outputs. The facility is to be composed of one hundred seventy Vestas V110 2-MW wind turbines. There will be two groups, each with eighty five turbines, with each half having their own generator step up transformer. A map in the GIA refers to it as the Beaver Creek project.
