Southern Tier wind project planners blown over by criticism

There was plenty of criticism from Southern Tier residents Monday night during an informational meeting about a planned wind turbine project for the towns of Arcade, Centerville, Farmersville, Freedom and Rushford. Invenergy, a Chicago-based wind power generation company, wants to erect some 100 turbines across the high hills of Allegany and Cattaraugus counties by 2020 – a project that its Business Development Director, Eric Miller, says will generate enough power for 147,000 homes a year and pay out nearly $8 . . .

Is Hopkinton wind farm dead? Maybe not

A wind farm proposed for Hopkinton might not have been short-circuited for good when the town board approved a strict wind law two weeks ago. There are whispers around town turbines could someday spin on North Ridge Wind Farm. That has opponents gearing up to fight it anew and proponents saying they hope it can be brought back. “I hope they just keep talking,” farmer Dick Eakins, “and realize that they’re throwing away a big potential for the town of . . .

NYS officials: East End shouldn’t be considered for wind farms

New York State will urge the federal government to exclude coastal areas off the Hamptons shore line from consideration for offshore wind farms, officials said. At a public meeting in Southampton on Monday to discuss the state’s blueprint for offshore wind development and proposed offshore area maps, state officials discussed reasons for removing a large proposed East End wind-farm area from federal consideration, including visual and fishing impacts.

Farmersville wind turbine law a flashback to ’90s landfill dispute

In what seems like a flashback from a 1990s landfill controversy, the Farmersville community is once again split over environmental issues and host payments. A public meeting Monday night, called by the Farmersville Town Board to hear comments on the proposed Alle-Catt Wind Farm in northern Cattaraugus and Allegany counties, drew nearly 200 people. Most attending the meeting at the Farmersville Fire Hall either opposed the proposed 23 nearly 600-foot wind turbines in the town or wanted protections including greater . . . Complete story »

Wind farm debate heats up on Long Island

It’s a hot topic and growing debate – using green energy for our power. Now, wind farms could soon be going up off Long Island’s South Shore. But not everyone wants that to happen, CBS2’s Jennifer McLogan reported Tuesday. Families visiting Fire Island National Seashore and hikers along Robert Moses State Park say they don’t want to see blinking lights on the horizon, lights that could come with turbines if wind farms are approved off the coast. Will what we can’t . . . Complete story »

Plans for offshore wind energy draw criticism at hearing in Southampton on Monday

The difference between what the federal government and New York State have carved out for renewable wind energy projects destined to be built off the south shore of Long Island is about 2.7 miles. That’s a big difference, especially for the commercial fishermen, environmentalists and South Fork residents who voiced their concerns Monday about wind farms proposed in their backyards. “We know the moment [the federal government] gets a taste of wind farms in the Atlantic, we are going to . . .

Did this SLC town just “zone out” wind farms?

Hopkinton, a small town in rural St. Lawrence County, just staked out a tough position when it comes to wind farms. Last month, Hopkinton’s town board approved a strict zoning law that will require wind farms to stay within one specific corner of town – but about a half-mile away from people’s homes and the boundary of the Adirondack Park. That’s causing problems for a wind project that’s been in development by Avangrid Renewables, an international energy company with wind farms . . . Complete story »

FARMERSVILLE – A proposal to site more than 100 wind turbines, each 600 feet tall, in four towns in northern Cattaraugus and Allegany counties has stirred up residents and environmental groups as a public hearing looms.
