Terrapin Hills pursues interconnection for 70-MW wind project in Maryland

Terrapin Hills LLC is at a mid-point in the PJM Interconnection queue process for a 69.6-MW wind project, to be located just north of Friendsville, Maryland.

A System Impact Study, dated September 2015 and posted to the PJM website, provides the documentation of an assessment that has been performed by PJM and FirstEnergy/Potomac Edison in response to a request made by Terrapin Hills for the connection of a 69.6 MW (9.1 MW capacity) generation project to the Hazelton–Jennings 138-kV line. The project is under PJM queue number #AA1-047.

The project would be comprised of 29 Nordex wind turbines, the study says.

The study doesn’t give any background information on Terrapin Hills LLC. The only active company by that name registered with the state of Maryland was listed in 2012 and has contact information for EverPower Wind Holdings Inc. at an address in Pittsburgh, Pa. This project doesn’t currently appear in a listing of in-development projects on the EverPower website. The website does show the same Pittsburgh address that is contained in the Maryland corporate listing for Terrapin Hills LLC.
