PJM files interconnect for 69-MW Terrapin Hills wind project in Maryland

PJM Interconnection on Jan. 6 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission an executed Interconnection Service Agreement with Terrapin Hills LLC, the developer of a wind farm in Maryland, and interconnecting transmission owner Potomac Edison.

The Terrapin Hills ISA facilitates the interconnection to the PJM system of a 69.1-MW wind facility located in Garrett County, Maryland. The Terrapin Hills ISA indicates that Terrapin Hills shall have Capacity Interconnection Rights in the amount of 9.1 MW.

This project is under PJM Queue Position #AA1-047. The Garrett County Wind Facility will be located near the town of Friendsville in Garrett County. It will consist of twenty nine 2.4-MW wind turbines. It will connect to the Potomac Edison system via a new three-breaker ring bus substation.

A project contact listed in the ISA is: Masahiro Ogiso, Chief Development Officer, Terrapin Hills LLC, 1251 Waterfront Place, 3rd Floor, Pittsburgh PA 15222. That is contact information for EverPower Wind Holdings, which says about Ogiso on its website: “Mr. Ogiso has over 13 years of experience in various roles in energy, finance, and project development.
