Several Chautauqua County residents are petitioning Rhodes to amend Cassadaga Wind, LLC’s certificate so . . . Complete story »

Turbine firms not letting nature take its course

Can you hear the lawyers laughing? Cassadaga Wind LLC’s lawyers filed an appeal to overrule the Department of Public Service’s siting board Condition 147 that prohibits the company from tree cutting more than 46 acres of Charlotte, Cherry Creek and wind turbine-besieged Arkwright from April 1 through Nov. 1 “to reduce mortality to nesting/roosting birds and bats …” Actually, a mass killing of roosting birds and bats would happen during those crucial months.
