Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider authorizing the County Judge to sign an AEP Agreement for Interconnection and Parallel Operation of Distributed Generation with AEP Texas related to the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program.
BACKGROUND
On June 15, 2011, Commissioners Court ratified the acceptance of a grant award with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts (State Energy Conservation Office) for the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program. The grant award was in the amount of $86,365. The project included the installation of a wind turbine and the solar voltaic arrays to directly lower electricity costs at the Central Garage, a Public Works facility.
DISCUSSION
Since the electricity generated will be interconnected with the AEP infrastructure it is necessary to enter into an agreement to establish each party’s responsibility for expenses, operation, maintenance, repair, and inspection.
