PSC seeks comment on Noble Wethersfield Windpark  

The New York Public Service Commission (Commission) today announced that it will conduct public statement hearings in the Town of Wethersfield on June 5, 2007, on a proposal by Noble Wethersfield Windpark, LLC to construct approximately 5.5 miles of electric transmission line from the company’s wind energy facility in Wethersfield to an existing transmission line north of the Windpark in the Town of Orangeville.

The date, times, and location for the public statement hearings are:

TUESDAY, JUNE 5, 2007, 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., Wyoming County Fire Training Center, 3651 Wethersfield Road, Wethersfield, NY 14569

The proposed substation in Wethersfield will collect electricity generated at the Windpark. The proposed switchyard in Orangeville will connect the new transmission line to an existing transmission line owned and operated by the New York State Electric & Gas Corporation.

The public will have an opportunity to present their comments at the hearings before the Administrative Law Judge assigned by the Commission to this case. A verbatim transcript of the hearing will be made for inclusion in the record of this proceeding.

It is not necessary to make an appointment in advance or to present written material in order to speak at the public statement hearing. Speakers will be called after completing a card requesting time to speak. The hearing will remain open and will continue until everyone wishing to speak has been heard or other reasonable arrangements are made.
