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

Terrapin Hills LLC has proposed a wind facility located near the town of Friendsville in Garrett County, Maryland, said a September 2016 study on the project from PJM Interconnection.

The installed facilities for this project will have a total capability of 69.6 MW with 9.1 MW of this output being recognized by PJM as capacity. The proposed in-service date for this project is Dec. 1, 2017. This study, which is a mid-point in the PJM queue process, does not imply a Potomac Edison commitment to this in-service date.

This project, under PJM queue #AA1-047, will interconnect with the Potomac Edison transmission system by tapping the Hazelton–Jennings 138-kV line with a three-breaker ring bus station. 

This project is located in northwestern Maryland. An Interim Deliverability Study will need to be performed by PJM since the Facilities Study commercial operation date is Dec.1, 2017, and the original study year was 2018. The transmission owner’s proposed schedule might not match the Terrapin Hills schedule.
