Wethersfield turbines going up

Wethersfield is actually a continuation of the Eagle project, which is consuming the two adjoining towns almost in their entirety. It’s unbelievable that this could happen in such a populated area of NY (compared to the Tug Hill region, for instance). The total for this project will be around 160 turbines, but it’s not ending there. Plans are in the works to expand further into Orangeville, Sheldon, Centerville, and Farmersville – the towns that border to the north and south – forming a 50 mile crescent-shaped swath spanning three (once) beautiful rural counties. Additionally, many, many unrelated wind projects are underway in western and central NY. The NY-ISO queue lists almost 70 of them.
