FERC accepts grid sharing deal for California solar power projects

FERC accepted a filing by Summer Solar of a grid sharing deal among several solar power projects in California.

Summer Solar had filed with FERC an amended and restated shared facilities agreement with Antelope Big Sky Ranch, Antelope DSR 1, Antelope DSR 2, Antelope DSR 3, Bayshore Solar A, Bayshore Solar B, Bayshore Solar C, Elevation Solar C, Solverde 1, Western Antelope Blue Sky Ranch B and Sustainable Power Services. Each of the parties to the agreement is an indirect subsidiary FTP Power.

These solar projects, to be located near each other, are:

·      The Antelope Big Sky Ranch Project is a nearly 20 MW photovoltaic facility to be constructed in or near Lancaster, California. It will consist of about 83,875 photovoltaic modules and 32 inverters, along with associated above and below ground electrical transmission and collection systems, transformers and related equipment.

·      The Antelope DSR 1 Project is a nearly 50 MW photovoltaic facility to be constructed in or near Lancaster. The project will consist of about 195,575 photovoltaic modules and 25 inverters, along with associated above and below ground electrical transmission and collection systems, transformers and related equipment.

·      The Antelope DSR 2 Project is a nearly 5 MW photovoltaic facility to be constructed in or near Lancaster. The project will consist of about 15,873 photovoltaic modules and 3 inverters, along with associated above and below ground electrical transmission and collection systems, transformers and related equipment.

·      The Antelope DSR 3 Project is a nearly 30 MW photovoltaic facility to be constructed in or near Lancaster. The project will consist of about to-be-determined (TBD) photovoltaic modules and TBD inverters, along with associated above and below ground electrical transmission and collection systems, transformers and related equipment.

·      The Bayshore Solar A Project is a nearly 20 MW photovoltaic facility to be constructed in or near Lancaster. The project will consist of about 79,363 photovoltaic modules and 10 inverters, along with associated above and below ground electrical transmission and collection systems, transformers and related equipment.

·      The Bayshore Solar B Project is a nearly 20 MW photovoltaic facility to be constructed in or near Lancaster. The project will consist of about 79,363 photovoltaic modules and 10 inverters, along with associated above and below ground electrical transmission and collection systems, transformers and related equipment.

·      The Bayshore Solar C Project is a nearly 20 MW photovoltaic facility to be constructed in or near Lancaster, California. The project will consist of about 79,363 photovoltaic modules and 10 inverters, along with associated above and below ground electrical transmission and collection systems, transformers and related equipment.

·      The Elevation Solar C Project is a nearly 40 MW photovoltaic facility to be constructed in or near Lancaster. The project will consist of about 167,750 photovoltaic modules and 25 inverters, along with associated above and below ground electrical transmission and collection systems, transformers and related equipment.

·      The Solverde 1 Project is a nearly 85 MW photovoltaic facility to be constructed in or near Lancaster. The project will consist of about 337,900 photovoltaic modules and 43 inverters, along with associated above and below ground electrical transmission and collection systems, transformers and related equipment.

·      The Summer Solar Project is a nearly 20 MW photovoltaic facility to be constructed in or near Lancaster. The project will consist of about 82,550 photovoltaic modules and 10 inverters, along with associated above and below ground electrical transmission and collection systems, transformers and related equipment.

·      The WABSRB Project is a nearly 20 MW photovoltaic facility to be constructed in or near Lancaster. The project will consist of about 82,540 photovoltaic modules and 13 inverters, along with associated above and below ground electrical transmission and collection systems, transformers and related equipment.
