Cassadaga Wind Project is Issued a Certificate

First Project Approved by New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment

ALBANY, NY — The New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment (“Siting Board”) met in Albany to issue its very first Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need pursuant to Article 10 to Construct a Wind Energy Project.

Anne Reynolds, Executive Director of the Alliance for Clean Energy New York (ACE NY) stated, “Today’s important milestone follows a comprehensive multi-year review process. Approval of the Cassadaga Wind Farm is the first under the 2011 siting law, and will set the bar for future energy projects. We are pleased that the first project has reached the end of the review process, since New York is striving to achieve its ambitious 50% renewable energy by 2030 goal.”

The Cassadaga Wind Project will be 126 megawatts, up to 48 wind turbines, and will be located in Chautauqua County in the towns of Charlotte, Cherry Creek, Arkwright, and Stockton. The Project has been under development since 2009.  The developer, Everpower Renewables, submitted its first Article 10 filing, the Public Involvement Program (PIP) in November 2014. The Preliminary Scoping Statement was submitted in September 2015, and the Application in May 2016
