EverPower files suit against Allegany

ALLEGANY – Officials with Allegany Wind, LLC, the developer of the Allegany Wind Project, announced late last week that they have filed a lawsuit against the town of Allegany.

In a press release obtained by the Olean Times Herald Monday, the complaint asks the Cattaraugus Supreme Court to enforce the terms of development contracts between EverPower and the town and to enjoin the town board from violating these contracts.

Officials with Allegany Wind LLC, a subsidiary of EverPower, noted that the town board recently announced plans to remove the wind overlay zoning district. EverPower officials claim that such action would ban the previously approved wind farm and violate the contract agreements it entered with EverPower.

“The town board’s recent actions seem to be consistent with their change in attitude and their attempts earlier this year to make development more difficult, if not impossible,” said Kevin Sheen, senior director of development for EverPower. “It’s unfortunate that we have had to start this lawsuit in order to protect our rights and compel the town board to live up to its promises.”
