Wind Turbine Company Eyes Crisfield


There’s been a lot of talk about the wind farm project in Somerset County these days.

But Windpower Aeronautica, which builds mid-scale turbines no higher than 310 feet, is looking at finding a location for a turbine assembly facility along the East Coast including the Carvel Hall cutlery plant in Crisfield.

In a statement issued by the Massachusetts company it said the region had a good combination of moderate wind speeds and electric costs that make the community wind projects feasible.

WBOC reports that Aeronautic Windpower is responsible for the turbine project at Crisfield’s Wastewater Treatment plant.

It is not clear when the company will make its decision.
