Maryland Public Service Commission to review Western Maryland wind power proposal.

According to Philly.com, “Maryland utility regulators are expected to consider a proposal for a western Maryland wind energy project.”

The article continues, Synergics Wind Energy wants to build a 50-megawatt wind energy farm on a mountaintop near Oakland in Garrett County. The Maryland Public Service Commission is scheduled to hear the case Wednesday afternoon.

An initial proposal by the company ran into permitting problems when the Department of Natural Resources insisted on conditions to protect habitat for rare and endangered species.

Earlier this month, Delaware regulators gave Delmarva Power the go-ahead to buy electricity from two planned Synergics projects in Maryland, including the Garrett County facility, as well a Pennsylvania wind farm.

A beautiful area under attack.

I highly recommend you go to stopillwind for information about the impact of wind power projects in the target area discussed above.
