LOWVILLE – The New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment meets at 10 a.m. Tuesday in Albany to consider an application for a 31-turbine wind facility in Lowville and Harrisburg in Lewis County.
Number Three Wind, a subsidiary of Invenergy, applied for a certificate of environmental compatibility and public need for the proposed facility with a capacity of 105.8 megawatts.
The project also includes access roads, an electrical collection system, meteorological towers, an operation and maintenance building, and electrical interconnection facilities.
The electrical interconnection facilities would include a project substation, a 115-kilovolt switchyard, and an overhead 115-kilovolt interconnection line approximately four miles in length that connects the substation to the switchyard and then to National Grid’s Lowville-Bremen transmission line.
The meeting is in the Public Service Commission’s Board Room, 19th floor, 3 Empire State Plaza, Albany, with video-conference connections to the Public Service Commission’s Board Room, 4th floor, 90 Church St., New York, New York.
