BP Energy to build a new substation in Lyme

National Grid is in the process of negotiating, with BP Energy to build a new substation in Lyme the project has a direct interaction with the St. Lawrence Wind Project .
BP Alternative Energy NA, Inc. (“Developer”) is constructing a 210 MW wind generation farm consisting of one hundred forty (140) GE 1.5 MW wind turbines which will be interconnected in two phases. Phase I will comprise 95 turbines (142.5 MW) and Phase II will include the remaining 45 turbines (62.4 MW). The output from each turbine will be stepped up to 34.5 kV through individual pad mount 690V/34.5kV, 1.75 MVA transformers. The 140 units will be distributed over 13 radial 34.5-kV feeder lines which will be brought to two separate collection stations, approximately 2 miles apart, one for each phase.

Is Phase II something new?

Phase II; talks about an additional 45 turbines? Where did this come from? Where are the plans? Where will phase II be located? Does Lyme know about this?
Has the size of BP's project changed? Are they using an old description of the project in this application,but have included GE 1.5 MW turbines? Are the 45 phase II turbines something new that is quietly being planned for?

Is this the site of the New Rockledge substation?
march 3, 2011 the Watertown Daily Times reported that St. Lawrence Wind Farm's developer plans to construct a new electrical substation, called Rockledge, in Lyme and then turn it over to National Grid, a utility spokeswoman said. link here

Is this project a shared project between Acciona & BP? This would make Edsall conflicted with both Acciona & BP



As reported in the watertown Daily Times May 19, 2010 Acciona buys land for transmission lines~
CHAUMONT -- Acciona Wind Energy USA, the developer of the proposed 53-turbine St. Lawrence Wind Farm in Cape Vincent, purchased 102 acres of farmland along Old Town Springs Road and Cheever Road from H. George VanAlstyne, Chaumont, for $180,000, according to property transactions recorded May 10 at the Jefferson County clerk's office.
Acciona wants to run a 9-mile, 115-kilovolt transmission line that would connect the wind farm's substation on Swamp Road, Cape Vincent, to a National Grid substation on County Route 179 in Lyme.
