Seneca scales back – VEC worried  

Credit:  By Laura Carpenter | The Newport Daily Express | April 8, 2013 | www.newportvermontdailyexpress.com ~~

FERDINAND – The energy company that wanted to construct a 35-turbine wind farm on Seneca Mountain has scaled back plans and is now considering a 17-turbine project instead. The amount of energy produced would be about 60 megawatts instead of the 90 to 100 megawatts planned in the previous project.

The previous plan ignited opposition from Brighton and Newark residents but, according to a nonbinding vote, people living in the Unified Towns and Gorges (UTG) are more receptive to the idea.

The Seneca Mountain Wind project is a joint effort between Eolian Renewable Energy out of Portsmouth, NH, and Nordex USA, headquartered in Chicago. Developers have not submitted a proposal, but company representatives have attended meetings in the UTG.
