Being a Good Neighbor

According to an article in yesterday's Democrat & Chronicle:

The Public Service Commission announced that it had authorized the construction and operation of wind energy generating projects capable of generating 127.5 megawatts of electricity in the two towns.

The commission said it would impose conditions on the projects in Cohocton and the Dutch Hill area of Avoca, near Bath, to ensure safe, reliable and adequate service. The wind turbines were proposed by Canandaigua Power Partners, LLC and Canandaigua Power Partners II, LLC.

According to documents on file with the commission, there was serious opposition to the project, including from the towns of Naples, Ontario County, and Italy, Yates County, that are just to the north of Cohocton and Avoca.

It will be interesting to see what "conditions" the PSC will impose and read more about the concerns of our fellow citizens in neighboring towns. We'll post the full text of the PSC ruling as soon as we get it. In the meantime, click here to read the entire D&C article.
