Lighthouse Wind accepts NYS code of conduct

BARKER – Lighthouse Wind LLC, an Apex Clean Energy subsidiary, announced Wednesday that it has signed the updated 2016 New York State Code of Conduct for Wind Farm Development.

Apex representatives had been in conversation with the New York State Attorney General’s Office about revising the original Code of Conduct. which was drafted before Article 10 of the state’s Public Service Law took effect. Article 10 created a state board that oversees wind energy development, and limits, to a degree, the amount of say that local governments have in the approval of such projects.

Because of Article 10, Apex argued that many of the concerns raised in the original code of conduct agreement did not apply. The attorney general’s office responded in turn that certain project requirements, such as special use permits for meteorological towers, remain subject to local approval outside the Article 10 process.

Revisions to the code were made and sent to Apex on Feb. 8. Those revisions were accepted and the code was signed by Lighthouse Wind representatives, according to Mark Goodwin, Apex president and chief operating officer.

“After careful review and discussions with the attorney general’s office, Lighthouse Wind is pleased to sign the Code of Conduct,” Goodwin said. “We look forward to exercising our due diligence and providing all necessary information as requested.”

A section of the code requires Apex to disclose the names of any municipal official or their family members who would benefit financially from the company’s wind farm development. To comply with the code, Apex must list the full name of the official or relative and the nature and scope of their financial interest, submit the information to the state Attorney General’s office and, also, list the information on its website.

“We would direct you to the Office of the Attorney General for more specifics and to our website, www.lighthousewind.com, for updates as we make them,” Taylor Quarles, Lighthouse Wind development manager, said.
