Timbermill Wind works on 300-MW project in North Carolina

Timbermill Wind LLC is proposing a 300.3-MW wind project in Perquimans County, North Carolina, said a System Impact Study on the project from PJM Interconnection.

The interconnected transmission owner for this project is Virginia Electric and Power d/b/a Dominion North Carolina Power, said the study, dated September 2014. The proposed in-service date for the project is Dec. 1, 2016, though PJM noted that Virginia Electric and Power is not committed to that date.

The project, under queue No. Z1-036, will interconnect with the transmission system via a new three breaker ring bus switching station that connects to the Windfall–Mackey’s 230-kV line. The study indicates that the project would be made up of 91 wind turbines of 3.3 MW of capacity apiece.

The study doesn’t indicate who controls Timbermill Wind. The North Carolina Secretary of State corporate database shows that the managing member of this company is Apex Clean Energy Holdings LLC with an address in Charlottesville, Va. A March 2014 annual report for the company gives the Apex President and COO as Mark Goodwin.
