GUILFORD – After the controversial approval of the wind farm in Guilford on Thursday, local agencies have discussed the project and what it could mean for the future of Chenango County.

According to the Calpine Corporation, the company that would build the wind turbines, the wind project is called “High Bridge Wind Farm.” The farm would be a 100 megawatt, utility-scale energy project that is proposed for eastern Chenango County in the Town of Guilford.

In order to get the project approved, Calpine had to undergo a review by The New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment Siting Board. The review was held on Thursday, and streamed online.

While judges on the board noted there were approximately 200 public comments made on the record, with the majority of them being against the farm, one judge, Board Chair John B. Howard said the project would benefit all New Yorkers by reducing reliance on fossil fuels.

The board voted unanimously to allow the project to move forward.
