FAA to study height of Empire Wind turbines, which exceed obstruction standards

A division of the Federal Aviation Administration has launched a study of the Empire Wind offshore wind farm planned for 14 miles off the coast of Long Beach, noting that planned turbines exceed FAA obstruction standards by 453 feet. Empire Wind, which called the review an “anticipated next step” in the project, has already received key state and federal approvals, and last week announced securing a contract with New York State. In a May 28 letter, the FAA’s Obstruction Evaluation . . . Complete story »

Schoharie County towns file lawsuit against N.Y. over solar, wind farm tax methods

More than a dozen towns in Schoharie County are suing the state of New York, claiming they’re not only being low-balled by the state’s method of taxing solar and wind projects, but that the new rules are unconstitutional. In 2021, the state established new rules requiring solar and wind farms that generate over one megawatt of electricity be assessed using a model formula. However, the town supervisors, listed as plaintiffs in the lawsuit, contend that local assessors have the “ultimate . . . Complete story »

3 New York wind farms scrapped

New York pulled the plug Friday on three offshore wind projects that encountered pricing problems after GE canceled the development of a larger turbine that the developers had been counting on. The decision is a setback for the US offshore wind industry and may have some cost implications for Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, which are in the midst of a joint procurement for offshore wind power. The three wind farms proposed for the coast off New York were all . . . Complete story »

New York says it is not moving forward with three offshore wind farms

New York State on Friday stalled three major offshore wind-energy projects after General Electric Vernova (GE.N) changed the turbine design, which the state said “materially altered” the plans. New York provisionally approved the projects in October 2023. They are Attentive Energy One being developed by TotalEnergies (TTEF.PA), Rise Light & Power and Corio Generation; Community Offshore Wind, which is backed by RWE (RWEG.DE), opens new tab and National Grid Ventures (NG.L); and Vineyard Offshore’s Excelsior Wind. But since then, GE . . . Complete story »

Major offshore wind projects in New York canceled in latest blow to industry

New York’s signature offshore wind projects meant to boost confidence in the industry are being scrapped, a major hit to the industry in the state and the nation. The decision is another setback to New York’s aspirations to achieve 70 percent renewable energy by 2030 and be a hub for the nascent industry in the United States. It will also be another challenge for President Joe Biden’s already likely out-of-reach 30 gigawatt goal for offshore wind by 2030. NYSERDA, the . . . Complete story »

Potential impact of wind farms on monarch butterflies understudied, experts say

The prospect of thousands of offshore wind turbines spinning in the waters between New York and New Jersey may have unintended consequences for threatened monarch butterflies that migrate from Long Island beaches each fall, scientists and conservationists say. A recent draft environmental impact study of the impact of offshore wind turbines in the New York Bight – the ocean waters off New York and New Jersey – made only brief and passing mention of the Monarchs, which congregate on South Shore beaches . . .

Langworthy, state lawmakers, others call for Great Lakes wind turbine moratorium

At the end of 2022, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) released a feasibility study focused on wind turbine energy production in Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. The 136-page study and 51-page white paper concluded that offshore wind production on the lakes isn’t cost effective, nor a unique and critical contribution to the states climate goals. But Citizens Against Wind Turbines In Lake Erie (CAWTILE) are still fighting for their cause because the study does leave room . . . Complete story »

Renewed push to put wind turbines in Lake Erie gets blowback in Hamburg

After a state entity shelved the proposal for wind turbines in Lake Erie 14 months ago, opponents of the idea suspected it was only a matter of time before the idea would be recycled. “Western New York does not want these wind turbines in Lake Erie,” said David Adrian, an aquatic biologist and member of the Citizens Against Wind Turbines in Lake Erie. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority determined in December 2022 that it wasn’t the . . . Complete story »

New wind turbines receive backlash from Otsego County communities

Members of the towns of Stark, Warren, and Springfield are fighting against the new wind farm projects. These wind farms are projects of New Leaf Stark 1 and Stark 2. The project encompasses more than 400 acres across the three towns. Many right now are against the idea of wind farms for a number of reasons. Earlier tonight, an information session was held to learn more about wind energy. Four different engineers spoke about all the negative effects that can . . . Complete story »
