Broome County wind farm critics: Costly tax break, few jobs for exported electricity

A former Industrial Development Agency director said he’s outraged that Broome County residents are being asked to pick up part of the tab for an electric generation project whose output will likely flow to metro New York. Stephen Herz said the 124-megawatt wind installation approved for the two towns will satisfy downstate’s growing need for electric generation while representing nothing but a burden for Broome taxpayers, who are being asked to forgo $30 million in property, sales and mortgage taxes. . . .

Farmersville Town Board votes 3-2 to appeal Alle-Catt decision

FARMERSVILLE – The Farmersville Town Board voted 3-2 Monday to appeal the New York Siting Commission’s approval of the Alle-Catt Wind Farm application. The state Siting Board on Electrical Generation Siting and the Environment approved the application of Alle-Catt Wind LLC on June 2. Last month, the Siting Board denied an appeal of the board’s June decision by Alle-Catt Wind Farm opponents in Farmersville and Freedom. The Siting Board’s decision opened the door for Alle-Catt Wind LLC to proceed with the . . . Complete story »

Port Cortlandt pulls plan for wind turbine plant, dock

CORTLANDT, NY – An ambitious project to build and ship offshore wind turbines from industrial Cortlandt waterfront property has been halted by its developers due to opposition from the community. The plan for revitalizing “one of Westchester County’s most valuable and untapped Hudson River access points” just south of Indian Point, where the nuclear facility closes for good in April, was put together by a consortium of Hudson Valley developers and planners. The proposal for Port Cortlandt would have taken advantage . . . Complete story »

Mitsubishi eyes Great Lakes for offshore wind development

Japan’s Mitsubishi Corp. continues to explore the possibility of building an offshore wind project in Lake Erie to deliver power for New York state, as development zones off the Atlantic Coast remain in limited supply. Diamond Offshore Wind, a unit of Mitsubishi Corp., stirred up local opposition last year after submitting an interconnection request with New York’s grid operator for potential capacity in eastern Lake Erie. The developer still believes offshore wind turbines are a good solution for the Great . . . Complete story »

Wind farm opponents blast town for ‘selling out’ Wainscott

In a strongly worded message issued last week, Citizens for the Preservation of Wainscott, a group that is fighting South Fork Wind farm’s plan to land its export cable at Beach Lane in that hamlet, accused both the East Hampton Town Board and the town trustees of a “duplicitous sell-out” of Wainscott, and pledged to contest the proposed wind farm “through litigation and all other means.” The trustees and wind farm officials have since pushed back on the angry dispatch, . . .

Facts don’t support putting wind turbines on our lakes

I have to disagree with many of the comments made by the conservation chair of the Atlantic Chapter of the Sierra Club in Tom Prohaska’s Sept. 5 article about renewable energy. The assertion that public voices will still be heard under Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s new Office of Renewable Energy Siting is not accurate. The very point in establishing this new agency was to make sure his renewable policy is advanced despite opposition from the public and affected municipalities. Voices . . . Complete story »

Tensions evident at Portland wind hearing

PORTLAND – Differing opinions on the proposed wind energy facilities law caused tempers to flare at a public hearing Tuesday in the town hall. Residents on both sides of the spectrum, for and against, spoke during the meeting and expressed their opinions, though most attendees were against some of the changes to the wind law, if not wind turbines in general. Those in attendance against the proposed wind law had clear opposition toward certain parts of it, mostly including the setback . . . Complete story »
