Wind farm proposed for Carbon County

See also

Many think the residents of Pennsylvania are full of hot air, and Tahali Wind Turbines LLC might agree. The entrepreneurial energy developer, residing in Brick, NJ, has proposed a $500 million wind farm for PA's Carbon County.

The proposed wind farm would house 80 football field high turbines, on 4,500 acres of land in the Broad Mountains; located in Nesquehoning and Packer Township. The farm could produce 200 megawatts of combined power output, which could be used to provide electricity for over 60,000 homes.

The land would be leased from KME Kovatch, a global supplier of specialized truck and custom vehicles. Kovatch currently leases land, near its Broad Mountain headquarters, to Con Edison of NY, and it is used to house a solar farm.

Tahali, on advice from Global Resource Advisors LLC--a Washington, DC green energy consulting firm--believes that Pennsylvania has viable winds, allowing the opportunity to facilitate the project in this region.

If approved, the project could be completed in less than two years, and operational by the fall of 2015.
