Wind Project Up for Public Comment

While offshore wind presents the biggest source of undeveloped renewable energy for North Carolina in the long term, land-based wind energy projects can play an important role in growing the state’s clean energy industry as well. One major proposed onshore wind project has the potential to generate enough electricity to power 42,000 homes. Its permit request is up for public comment now.

The state Division of Energy, Mineral, and Land Resources has scheduled a public hearing in July on the proposed 189-megawatt Timbermill project in Chowan County. The in-person hearing is scheduled for July 21 from 6 to 9 p.m. in Edenton, and written comments will be accepted through July 31. Make your voice heard!
