151-MW Old Settler Wind project in Texas to go commercial around March 15

Old Settler Wind LLC, which has a nearly-completed wind farm in Texas, on Jan. 5 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a notice of self-certification of its status as an exempt wholesale generator.

Old Settler is constructing and will own an approximately 151.2 MW (nameplate) wind facility in Floyd County, Texas. The Old Settler Facility is currently projected for commercial operation on or about March 15, 2017.

The project consists of sixty-three General Electric 2.4-MW, 107m rotor wind turbines and associated equipment, as well as the limited interconnection facilities necessary to interconnect it with the Electricity Reliability Council of Texas grid. Old Settler will sell all of its output into the ERCOT market and will not sell any electricity outside of ERCOT.
