Maryland wind power project requests more time before beginning construction

Maryland Public Service Commission Dan's Mountain Wind Force LLC Allegany County Exelon

Dan’s Mountain Wind Force LLC has asked the Maryland Public Service Commission for additional time to begin construction of a wind power project on the Allegany County ridgeline, according to a report from the Cumberland Times-News.

The developer asked the PSC to extend the current Sept. 12 construction-start deadline to Dec. 31 and asked to be placed on the commission’s Aug. 28 agenda, according to the report.

The project would use about 25 wind turbines to produce up to 69.6 MW of power, according to the report. Dan’s Mountain Wind Force told the PSC an extension would allow tree clearing to begin in early 2014.

Dan’s Mountain Wind Force has an agreement with Exelon (NYSE: EXC) for development of the project, which would eventually be purchased by Exelon, the report states.
