250-MW Main Wind Development Put on Hold


By Editors of Power Engineering

EDP Renewables has notified Maine regulators that the company is withdrawing its application for the 250-MW, 119-turbine Number Nine Wind Project in Aroostook County.

Kellen Ingalls, a project manager with EDP, wrote in the notification the withdrawal stems from “an unexpectedly lengthy interconnection process” that lead to it losing its power purchase agreements with Eversource Energy and United Illuminating Company, the Bangor Daily News reported.

The company had previously announced it lost the power purchase agreements when it became clear EDP would not meet project schedule milestones due to extraordinary delays in the interconnection process.

However, Ingalls noted EDP plans to resubmit its application in the near future.

If built, Number Nine Wind Project would be the largest wind facility in Maine, surpassing the 185-MW Bingham wind development.
