Tour of wind farms set for Saturday  

Area residents interested in wind power development are invited to take part in a guided tour of an operating wind power conversion system at Cohocton on Saturday.

Helen Thomas, of First Wind – known as UPC Wind before the firm adopted its new name in May – said there are no fees involved. Lunch will be provided as part of the tour. Buses, provided by First Wind will leave at 8 a.m., and are scheduled to be back at the fire hall by 4 p.m. Coffee and donuts will be available prior to the two-hour trip.

Those planning to take part in the tour are asked to contact First Wind representative Tricia Walter at 585-591-3270. The Cohocton project, developed as a UPC Wind system, is located near Bath. For some area residents, Saturday’s tour will mark a second visit to the Steuben County site.

In January, the firm was selected by a number of town property owners to develop a wind farm in the town of Charlotte, after the group toured the Cohocton site in December 2007.
