Check it out - Phase-I during the eclipse. Power production dropped smoothly from 70kW down to a minimum of 25kW at around 2:30pmm recovering to about 55kW around 4pm. The reduction corresponded perfectly with the fraction of totality seen in southern Vermont - i.e. 65%. I like how that worked out. Science!
A bit of a setback to our schedule today. GMP wants us to file another interconnect application, since we reduced the project size down from the original 200kW (AC) to 76.6kW (AC). The latter is just enough to fit on the developed area under phase-I and meets all the power needs of our phase-II customers. The reduction is much more than is permitted in the Rule 5.500 process. The adjusted application and all pertinent documents have been filed with GMP. This might set our schedule back by a few weeks.
You can follow the progress of our CPG application with the Public Utility Commission by going to their ePUC website and searching under Case # 17-3797-NMP.
An initial filing of the Certificate of Public Good application for the SCS Phase II project earlier in August was followed up with more documents and exhibits that the Public Utility Commission required. These were filed on August 15, 2017.
