Two more wind farms considered in western Maryland

McHENRY – Wind-power developers are considering two new projects in western Maryland.

The Garrett County Commissioners are set to hear an update Tuesday.

County officials say Clipper Windpower is considering a project called Fair Wind on Backbone Mountain south of Oakland. It would be just south of a 28-turbine wind farm Clipper built that is now owned by Constellation Energy Group. The company, based in Carpenteria, Calif., didn’t respond to inquiries from The Associated Press.

Annapolis-based Synergics says it’s doing environmental and wind studies on Four Mile Ridge, southwest of Frostburg near the Little Savage River. The company says the project would be 60 megawatts. That’s 10 megawatts more than a 20-turbine project on Backbone Mountain that Synergics built and sold last year to Gestamp Corp. of Madrid, Spain.
