In reading your article called on wind plants, I would like to correct your reference to AES Corporation obtaining approval in Tioga County for the Armenia Mountain wind energy project.
The Tioga County Planning Commission issued a “preliminary conditional approval” in December, but I can assure you this is not a “final approval.”
The Tioga Preservation Group filed an appeal on Jan. 17. This means AES’s Armenia Mountain project is dead in the water for now.
