New York state approval

New York’s siting board has agreed to the construction, by Avangrid Inc subsidiary Avangrid Renewables LLC, of a 101MW wind farm in New York state. The approval was issued by the New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment, granting approval for Atlantic Wind LLC to build and operate a wind farm in the state’s Lewis and Jefferson counties.

Named the Deer River proposal, the plan includes the installation of 25 turbines, at heights of 590 feet and 492 feet, on approximately 6,000 acres of private land. The siting board described the wind park as “a beneficial addition” to New York’s electric generating capacity, that will help improve the reliability of the state’s power grid.
