The Twin Ridges Wind Farm project in Somerset County, which is being developed by part-New York, part-Pittsburgh-based EverPower Wind Holdings Inc., got a serious boost with a $12.7 million grant from the state.
This is a 139-megawatt wind farm that is expected to generate a fifth of Pennsylvania’s wind power when operational by the end of next year.
The total cost of the project is $238.8 million.
This was part of the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s energy funding program.
Closer to home, Converteam Naval Systems in O’Hara got a $301,129 grant for outdoor solar inverter research & development.
