Staff recommends approval of the Ownership and Operating Agreement for the Leesburg Airport Substation with Progress Energy Florida (PEF.)
The Airport Substation was designed and constructed to accommodate dual sources from the PEF 69 kV transmission line. The initial connection to the transmission line was installed during the early 1980s and only one source was connected because of the reduced cost compared to installing two connections. The proposed Agreement adds the second source from the transmission line and establishes the delineation of operational duties between the City and PEF. PEF proposes to construct the second source at their expense to loop the connection “in and out” of the substation which will eliminate the single contingency failure point that exists today with the single source. PEF will own both connections to the line side of the City owned 69kV switches L12001 and L12003 at the Airport substation.
1. Approve the Ownership and Operating Agreement
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
