Over objections, eastern Broome wind farm gets green light

An attempt to derail an eastern Broome County wind farm failed Thursday when the state’s Electric Generation Siting Board rejected an appeal from opponents. Meeting through electronic means because of the coronavirus outbreak, by a 5-2 vote, the board dismissed claims by detractors that the project would harm a fragile rural environment. The board gave Calpine Inc. the green light to proceed with the 27-turbine project, known as Bluestone Wind, that received the initial go-ahead earlier this year. “The project . . .

New York becomes first state to establish renewables siting office in an effort to speed up deployment

Dive Brief: In an effort to speed the development of large-scale clean energy resources, New York lawmakers authorized the creation of an Office of Renewable Energy Siting (ORES) and took steps to accelerate transmission investment to move carbon-free electricity to load centers. The new siting rules will ensure renewables projects larger than 25 MW can receive approval within a year. Under the current process, siting for these projects takes two to three years, experts say.  The new office was approved last . . . Complete story »

Is Cassadaga Wind a potential Covid-19 vector?

New York’s governor has decreed that “all non-essential workers must stay home.” But work on the Innogy wind turbine project in Chautauqua County continues: truck drivers, heavy equipment operators, excavators, loggers, flagmen and others are working in Cherry Creek and Charlotte. This work is not essential and for health reasons shouldn’t it be stopped until the Covid-19 pandemic is abated? Literalists will respond that according to “the law” (Executive Order 202.6) utilities are classified as “essential infrastructure” and given a . . . Complete story »

Giglio blasts policy items remaining in Cuomo’s budget proposals

Assemblyman Joseph Giglio and state Sen. George Borrello both expressed frustration Thursday with the policy items that remain in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposed budget. Giglio, R-Gowanda, was especially concerned that Article 23, which eliminates “home rule” in the siting of alternate energy facilities, is in the budget. The revised wind and solar siting laws would create a new state office to promote alternative energy projects like the proposed Alle-Catt Wind Farm in northern Cattaraugus and Allegany counties over the objections . . .

Negotiations are continuing on the proposed changes to siting solar and wind energy, known as the Accelerated Renewable Energy Growth and Community Benefit Act, said a spokesman in the office of Gov.

Department of State to oversee renewable siting office

Sen. Kevin Parker, chair of the chamber’s Energy Committee, said the budget will include a landmark shift to how new renewable projects get sited – and the process will be overseen by the Department of State. Gov. Andrew Cuomo pushed to rewrite the permitting process for large-scale wind and solar projects, which have faced delays and drawn-out battles under the Article 10 process he signed into law in 2011. The final deal is set to mirror Cuomo’s plan in substance, although . . . Complete story »
