CAISO Cluster #4 Phase 1 Study Results Produce Massive Deposits

During the past day or so the Utilities/CAISO have been sending out the phase 1 cluster #4 interconnection study reports to developers.  As you may remember this new cluster process (GIP) produced a record number of new applications last March for both the CAISO controlled transmission network as well as the distribution networks of SCE/PG&E/SDG&E. According to CAISO published documentation the Cluster #4 applications were greater than 35GW of new capacity.

So now the panic sets in because these studies for ~20MW or greater projects are showing massive interconnection deposits needed within a 90 day deadline.  This is because so many projects may be connected onto the same transmission lines/distribution lines and therefore cause large network upgrade costs.  Welcome to the need for millions of dollars of secured deposits due within a 90 day window, before you have to withdraw from the application.

So now the best in class solar developer/investor groups are the only solution for many in this situation.

Our company can help. “SLP” seeks CAISO or GIP Cluster #4 solar energy projects in order to provide investment and/or co-development services.  SLP is highly qualified and can move quickly on viable projects whose deposits are due in early April 2012.
