Two new turbines added to Howard, Everpower project

Howard, N.Y. – Two more wind turbines will officially be coming to the Town of Howard as part of the Everpower project.

The planning board approved the two additional turbines Thursday night, according to planning board member Jim Fodge, who acts as chairman in issues dealing with wind farms.

The two new turbines will be situated on Spencer Hill Road on property purchased by Everpower. A building on the property will also be used for offices and maintenance.

Fodge was unsure how much additional funds would flow into the town coffers from the two additional turbines, but he did say Everpower’s PILOT payments would increase.

These last two turbines seem to be the final additions to the Everpower wind project, although the board is willing to hear other people interested in adding turbines to their property.

“I can’t say if there will be any more,” said Fodge. “If somebody comes in with an application, we’d consider it, but there’s no indication of that happening.”

Construction of the 27 turbines is expected to be finished by the end of August or early September, with the turbines tying into the grid in mid-October. The turbines are expected to be fully operational by mid-December.

The project generated over $20 million in new employment revenue and will produce $8.5 million over 20 years in revenue divided between the Town of Howard, Steuben County, and the Canisteo-Greenwood and Hornell City School Districts.

Howard received 51.5 percent of the funds from the 20-year PILOT agreement, with Steuben County pulling in 16.5 percent, the Canisteo-Greenwood School District 29.44 percent, and the Hornell City School District 2.56 percent.
