Anti-turbine group cites Texas radar report

Pamela Atwater, president of Save Ontario Shores (SOS), has written a letter to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo regarding a new study by the U.S. Navy that found industrial wind turbines could affect air traffic control radars.

The study was done on a proposed industrial wind project near Naval Air Stations Corpus Christi and Kingsville in Texas.

Citing its conclusion, which is that “close proximity to wind turbines could impact air traffic control radars and reduce target detection or create false targets to appear on radar,” Atwater’s letter asks that Cuomo and the state siting board that would approve or reject a tentatively proposed wind farm in Barker-Lyndonville first call on the U.S. Department of Defense to conduct a comprehensive radar study on nearby Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station.

“Not to do so could prove disastrous for the future of NFARS and the 2,600 people who work there,” Atwater said.

Virginia-based Apex Clean Energy has pitched construction of Lighthouse Wind as an up-to 70-turbine wind farm with turbines reportedly as tall as 620 feet, which would make them the tallest turbines on land in the United States and the highest structures in this state outside New York City.
