An Economic Opportunity for Chowan County
Timbermill Wind promises to bring significant economic benefits to the economy of Chowan County. 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 County's economy to support local merchants, contractors, and equipment suppliers.
