Electric Transmission Texas revises SGIA for 250-MW Willow Springs Windfarm

Electric Transmission Texas LLC on Dec. 2 filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas a revised ERCOT Standard Generation Interconnection Agreement with Willow Springs Windfarm LLC

These companies had ooriginally entered into an SGIA as of May 1, 2015. They worked out a First Amended and Restated SGIA as of Sept. 21, 2015. This new version makes several changes from that first revision.

This project will interconnect via Willow Springs Windfarm’s Salvation Substation, which will be located in Haskell and Knox counties approximately 15 miles east of Haskell, Texas. Once the facilities are completed and energized, the Point of Interconnection will be located at the dead-end structure inside the Smoky Hill 345 kV Station of Electric Transmission Texas, which terminates the project company’s 345-kV transmission line from the substation.

This is a nominal 250-MW project, to be be comprised of 100 units at 2.5 MW each. These are General Electric 2.5 wind turbines.

There is no firm scheduled commercial operation date for the project, with that coming after certain other project milestones are reached. 

That is contact information for power plant developer Lincoln Clean Energy (LCE), which says about itself on its website: "LCE is a developer, owner and operator of clean power projects with a particular focus on wind and solar power in the United States. We have successfully developed projects involving over $1.5 billion in capital investment in some of the largest electricity markets in the US (including Texas, California and New Jersey)."
