Crisfield Wind Power Project Gets $3.6M From Md.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s Board of Public Works has approved $3.6 million for a wind power project in Crisfield, clearing the way for construction to begin.

The board approved a $3.2 million grant and a $453,000 loan for the project. The grant forgives a state loan for the project, which would provide power to Crisfield’s sewage treatment plant. The turbine is expected to save the city $150,000 to $200,000 a year.

The City Council awarded a construction contract for the turbine in January. An engineer hired by the city told council members at that time that construction was expected to take nine months, and could begin following approval of funding by the Board of Public Works.
