Nordex says delivery and installation of the wind turbines will start in August, with the wind farm due to be commissioned in December. The contract with developer and future operator Synergics includes a five-year maintenance agreement.

The Roth Rock wind farm is expected to produce 124 GWh of electricity annually. It will be placed atop the Backbone Mountain along an undeveloped ridge stretching three miles.

The wind energy will be bought by Delmarva Power, the University of Maryland and other entities of the State of Maryland.
