Tonbridge Power Inc. has entered into a second agreement with anchor shipper Invenergy Wind Development LLC that will further the development of Tonbridge's Green Line project in Montana.
The Green Line project will be approximately 100 miles in length and is Tonbridge's second transmission-line project. It will run southwest from the south end of Tonbridge's Montana Alberta Tie Ltd. transmission line, which is currently under construction, and connect with Bonneville Power Administration's transmission system.
The total capacity requests now equal 850 MW on the Green Line. The formal allocation of these capacity requests will occur through a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approval process. In this respect, Gaelectric and Invenergy will be anchor shippers and will receive their development contributions back over time, through credits against contracted transmission tariff charges after the line is in service.
Invenergy Wind Development LLC is an affiliate of Chicago-based Invenergy Wind LLC, a developer of large-scale wind projects.
