Alle-Catt Wind Farm opponents set up GoFundMe page for appeal

A GoFundMe page has been created to raise $50,000 to help pay for an appeal of the New York Siting Board’s decision to permit the proposed $550 million Alle-Catt Wind Farm across 30,000 acres in northern Cattaraugus and Allegany counties.

The GoFundMe page was created earlier this month by Jeff Tutuska of Centerville’s Concerned Citizens.

According to Stephanie Milks, the former president of Freedom United, the effort has raised more than 25% of the goal.

Milks said Alle-Catt opponents have already donated $10,000 to fight the state Siting Board’s decision on June 3 to grant a certificate of need to Alle-Catt.

Another $3,000 was donated by several individuals including $500 each by Milks and the current Freedom United president Denise Willard.

In an email and Facebook post on Monday, Milks wrote, “Please send this to friends and family across all of New York State. (Gov. Andrew) Cuomo wants 70% renewable energy by 2030 and the Alle-Catt project is just the beginning. Let’s set the precedent and stop his unethical actions and the Siting Board’s neglect in its tracks here and now and protect our rights as American citizens and the freedoms for our future generations.

“The fight is not over. It has just begun.”

Milks enclosed a link to a Forbes article published last week that details the Town of Freedom’s fight against alternative energy giant Invenergy, which first proposed the 117-turbine Alle-Catt project in 2017.
