Deal finished for Patton wind farm

PATTON – A deal has been closed for a proposed new wind farm in Cambria County.

OwnEnergy and EverPower Wind Holdings Inc., a subsidiary of Terra Firma, announced the deal Tuesday where EverPower will buy and construct Patton Wind Farm LLC in Elder, West Carroll and East Carroll townships.

The project will be 30 megawatts and will be fully operational by the end of 2012, OwnEnergy said in a news release.

OwnEnergy has been working on the project with Patton farmer Marty Yahner to secure the land and begin development.

“When I learned that a wind farm would be developed here, I was excited by the project but wanted to make sure it would work for me and my neighbors,” Yahner, a sixth-generation farmer, said.

An agreement has been reached with PJM Interconnection, and power will be sold on the merchant market, the company said.

The project, located on about 2,700 acres of farmland, will create about 100 construction jobs, and then up to 10 full-time jobs to operate the site for the next 30 years.
