On the road to truthiness

The siting board should reject the Apex application and ensure no subsequent applicants with any connection to Apex be allowed to reapply. Apex is working its way through Public Service Department review for Lighthouse Wind. And if the lie over Galloo is allowed to stand, it will be a sign to every wind developer, and especially Apex, that the siting process under Article 10 of Public Service Law is a mere formality on the way to a rubber-stamp approval.
