Judge deals blow to Galloo Island wind farm project

It’s another setback for a proposed wind farm on Galloo Island.

Administrative Law Judge Kevin Casutto says there’s no public need for a transmission line between the wind farm project and the mainland.

The judge recommends the State Public Service Commission dismiss the application by Upstate NY Power, citing long delays in the project and the effect on potentially affected landowners.

As originally envisioned in 2009, the electricity from Galloo Island would be sold to the state Power Authority, which abandoned the idea in late 2011.

Since then, Upstate talked about selling electricity to Fort Drum, but that idea was apparently pre-empted by a plant on post that will burn wood waste to generate power.
