Exelon Generation’s Fourmile Wind Energy Project, located in the northeast section of Garrett County, became fully operational Jan. 22. The project has 16 turbines capable of generating 40 megawatts of clean energy for Maryland consumers.
The Fourmile Project is the first of two wind projects being constructed in Western Maryland as part of renewable energy commitments made to the state in connection with the Exelon-Constellation merger. The Fair Wind Energy Project will begin construction on Backbone Mountain along U.S. Route 50 in the spring, which will add 30 MWs of clean renewable generation, fulfilling the merger commitment of providing at least 62.5 MWs of onshore wind power to Maryland. Exelon’s Criterion Wind Project was Maryland’s first commercial wind project and began operation in 2010. It consists of 28 turbines capable of generating 70 MWs of electricity. Read more>>
