W. Va.'s Mount Storm wind farm gets financing  

The Mount Storm wind farm has a new $185 million construction and operating loan.

European banking and insurance giant Fortis and Spanish banking group Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria said Friday they will be the lead lenders for a 15-year loan for the NedPower Mount Storm project.

NedPower will be jointly owned by Richmond, Va.-based Dominion Resources and Shell WindEnergy Inc.

The project’s first phase – 82 turbines capable of generating 164 megawatts of electricity – is scheduled to start commercial operations next January.

Dominion and Shell have said they plan 50 more turbines despite a legal challenge. In June, the state Supreme Court reinstated a lawsuit brought by homeowners living near the northeastern West Virginia project.
