Electric Transmission Texas files interconnect for 250 MW Hidalgo Wind project

Electric Transmission Texas filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas on Oct. 30 an updated generation interconnection agreement with Hidalgo Wind for a 250 MW wind power project.

The agreement doesn’t establish a firm commercial date for the project, with that date based on when prior milestones are achieved.

This is a 250 MW project, to be made up of 125 Vestas V110 wind turbines of 2 MW each.

The project developer will establish the Los Mirasoles Substation in Hidalgo County, 3.5 miles west of McCook, Texas. The project will then interconnect from there into ETT’s 345 kV Pomelo Station.
