Legislature hears presentation on Enfield wind farm proposal  

Credit:  www.tompkins-co.org 05-04-2010 ~~

Project manager Marguerite Wells provided legislators an overview of Enfield Energy LLC’s proposed Black Oak Wind Farm project, which would develop a 50 megawatt wind farm on Black Oak Road in the Town of Enfield, described as the windiest place in the county. Enfield Energy projects the 50 megawatts of generating capacity would produce 122 megawatt-hours of electricity annually, supplied to the electric grid using 20 wind turbines, said to be enough power to nearly 56,000 homes over the course of a year. Project cost is estimated at $105-120 million. Wells reported that the Town of Enfield has created a local law specific to wind energy, the county’s Environmental Management Council has supported the project, and the environmental review process is beginning. The organization is working to secure a financial partner and to identify customers who would be interested in buying power. The site would include a renewable energy education and research component, which would teach the public about renewable power sources and provide research opportunities for local organizations. Legislature Chair Martha Roberson called the project a great opportunity for the community.
