PJM files new interconnect deal for 60-MW Maryland wind project

PJM Interconnection on Sept. 30 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed interconnection service agreement (ISA) among PJM, Fourmile Wind Energy LLC and Potomac Edison.

This Fourmile Wind ISA supersedes a conforming interim ISA that was entered into among PJM, Synergics Wind Energy LLC and Potomac Edison and became effective in 2009.

The Fourmile Wind ISA facilitates the interconnection of the 60-MW Fourmile Ridge Wind Project. The facility is located in Garrett County, Md. This new generation consists of twenty-four 2.5-MW Nordex wind turbine-generators and the associated collection bus system.

Under the ISA, on or before Dec. 1, 2014, Fourmile Wind Energy must demonstrate commercial operation of all generating units.

The wind developer contact information is: Fourmile Wind Energy LLC, 191 Main Street, Annapolis, MD 21401,
 Attn: Wayne Rogers, President.

The Maryland Public Service Commission earlier this year gave an approval for Synergics Wind and Fourmile Wind Energy LLC to develop the Fourmile Ridge project. The commission approved construction of 24 wind turbine Type III generators following its April 24 meeting. Projected cost of the project is $100m. It would be developed on private land near Frostburg, Md. The area is “partly disturbed” by stone quarries and logging, the company said.
