About Timbermill Wind
The Timbermill Wind farm could offer an opportunity to address the region’s growing electricity demand with clean, domestic energy, while diversifying Chowan and Perquimans Counties’ economies and supporting the rural farm and timber communities.
The proposed Timbermill Wind project is conceived as a utility-scale wind energy farm, located on the adjoining county line between Perquimans and Chowan Counties. The project is expected to include up to 105 modern wind turbines, which will be interspersed across approximately 15,000 acres of timber and agricultural lands.
An Economic Opportunity for Chowan and Perquimans Counties
Timbermill Wind promises to bring significant economic benefits to the economies of Chowan and Perquimans Counties. In the near term, the project will provide construction jobs and new revenues from local purchasing of materials and services. In the long term, the project is expected to bring sustained tax revenue to the counties for the local governments and schools, as well as 25 years of local purchasing, employment, and investment.
Farmers who host wind turbines and other participating landowners will also receive annual lease payments. These payments will continue over the projected 25-year lifespan of the wind farm, injecting millions of dollars into Chowan and Perquimans Counties’ economy to support local merchants, contractors, and equipment suppliers.
