Date: 2020-01-22
In the Empire State, Charlottesville, Virginia-based Apex Clean Energy's Heritage Wind unit is proposing a wind farm consisting of up to 33 wind turbines generating up to 184.8 megawatts of electricity in Barre.

The project would include wind turbines, access roads, electrical collection lines, substations, permanent meteorological towers, an operations and maintenance building, and construction staging areas. As part of the project's Article 10 process, a Preliminary Scoping Statement was filed on March 16, 2018 with the state siting board.

NYSERDA Awards $1.5Bn for NY Large-Scale Wind, Solar (Funding)
NYSERDA
Date: 2019-01-21
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), a public benefit corporation, is reporting details of the $1.5 billion in NY State competitive awards to support large-scale solar, wind energy and storage projects across the Empire State.

The 20 funded projects are expected to generate $4 billion in direct investment in the clean energy sector, significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and generate sufficient clean energy for nearly 550,000 homes. Combined with the renewable energy projects previously announced under democratic Governor Cuomo's Clean Energy Standard, New York has now awarded 46 projects worth more than $2.9 billion.

The awards also propel New York toward the Governor's ramped up mandate for 70 pct of the state's electricity to come from renewable sources by 2030 -- up from 50 pct -- and helps guide the state toward achieving carbon neutrality across all sectors of its economy as quickly as possible including a 100 pct carbon-free electricity sector by 2040.

The 20 large-scale renewable energy projects include: Hannacroix Solar Facility - Greene County; Stillwater Solar - Saratoga County: Clay Solar - Onondaga County; Dog Corners Solar - Cayuga County; Excelsior Energy Center - Genesee County; Heritage Wind - Orleans County; Horseshoe Solar - Livingston County; Manchester Solar - Ontario County; Morris Ridge Solar - Livingston County; North Light Energy Center - Seneca County; Silver Lake Solar - Wyoming County; Hills Solar - Herkimer County; Mohawk Solar - Montgomery County; Skyline Solar - Oneida County; Watkins Road Solar I - Herkimer County; Roaring Brook Wind - Lewis County; Canisteo Wind - Steuben County; High Bridge Wind - Chenango County; Bakerstand Solar I - Cattaraugus County: and the Watkins Glen Solar Energy Center - Schuyler County.

All projects are expected to be operational by 2022, adding over 1,654 megawatts of renewable capacity in New York and generating over 3,800,000 megawatt hours of energy annually.The projects are expected to generate enough clean, renewable energy to reduce carbon emissions by more than 2 million metric tons, the equivalent to taking nearly 437,000 cars off the road.

NYSERDA will issue the next solicitation for large-scale renewable energy under the Clean Energy Standard on April 22, 2019. (Source: NYSERDA, 18 Jan., 2019) Contact: NYSERDA, Alicia Barton, Pres., CEO, (518) 862-1090, www.nyserda.ny.gov
