Atlantic Renewable Corp of Virginia says it is working on seven wind projects in the eastern US, three in New York, another two in Pennsylvania and two in West Virginia. The New York projects are in addition to its 15.6 MW Mill Run project (page 19). In central New York, the Canastota project, which has a build-out capacity of some 30 MW, has been earmarked for a state grant under a recent competitive wind solicitation. In north central New York, International Wind Corporation of Dallas is a 50% partner in the Flat Rock project, with a proposed capacity as large as 50 MW. A smaller project at Delaware, also in the north central state, is proposed at less than 10 MW. In West Virginia, the company is working on the Backbone Mountain project in Tucker County. It has the potential to be as large as 75 MW and is planned to be on-line in 2001. No details have yet been released of a second wind proposal in West Virginia, or of the company's two planned projects in Somerset County in southwestern Pennsylvania. International Wind Corp, which over the years has invested in 140 MW of wind in California, the UK and Costa Rica, is a 50% partner in the two Pennsylvania projects.
