East Hampton Town board majority supports wind farm over objections of Lys, Bragman

Two East Hampton Town councilmen said on Tuesday that they will vote to deny the application by Deepwater Wind to land the South Fork Wind Farm power cable in Wainscott if it comes up for a vote—and they implored the rest of the Town Board to put off a decision on the proposal until a more comprehensive review of the project has been completed.

Fishermen: wind farms bad for business

Federal officials in charge of leasing ocean bottom land to offshore wind farm companies got an earful at a meeting with commercial fishermen Wednesday – and much of it was R-rated. There isn’t merely significant opposition to offshore wind farms; there is 100-percent agreement among the fishermen that the wind turbines will eventually put them out of business. The anger is palpable, and representatives from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management took the brunt of it, enduring a tirade of complaints. . . . Complete story »

The offshore wind developer hired liaisons to offer dockside information . . . Complete story »

Jenne criticizes Republican senators for not supporting bill limiting wind turbines near Drum — senators disagree

During an interview on Tuesday, state Assemblywoman Addie A.E. Jenne, D-Theresa, said that the responsibility for the failure of her bill that attempted to block wind development near Fort Drum rested partially on local Republican state senators. Ms. Jenne said she discussed the bill with Sens. Patricia A. Ritchie, R-Heuvelton, and Joseph A. Griffo, R-Rome, and if either had introduced the bill concurrently it would have had a better chance in the Assembly. “Neither of the senators introduced the bill . . . Complete story »

A public forum on potential offshore wind farm sites turned tense as East End commercial fishing representatives railed against the renewable energy source and its potential impact on their industry. The U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management in April released maps for possible lease sites including two large swathes off eastern Long Island’s southern coast, one south of Great South Bay and one off the coast of New Jersey, all in what’s known as the New York Bight area.

Jenne: Politics sunk wind power bill

North country assemblywoman Addie Jenne says politics played a role in scuttling a law she proposed that would have limited state subsidies to wind turbine farms in much of northern New York. Jenne’s bill would have discouraged the construction of wind turbines near Fort Drum, in part of Lewis County and in a wide swath of St. Lawrence County, by eliminating subsidies in some cases. It never got to a final vote in either the assembly or state senate in . . . Complete story »

County Planning Board tables decision on wind project

MAYVILLE – The Chautauqua County Planning Board decided to table its decision regarding a proposed amendment to the Ball Hill Wind Energy Project in the towns of Villenova and Hanover.

The potential precedent-setting decision has come under intense opposition from some area residents who fear taller wind turbines would mean increased shadow . . . Complete story »
