Baron Winds Wind Project, Steuben County, NY

  • Up to 300 MW
  • Up to 76 wind turbines
  • Approximately 320,000 tons of offset CO2 each year

The Baron Winds Wind project is a proposed 300 MW wind farm located in the Towns of Cohocton, Dansville, Fremont, and Wayland in Steuben County, NY. The project will be located on primarily farmland and recreational land and could include up to 76 turbines when completed. The project’s point of interconnection is expected to be in the existing Canandaigua  substation in the Town of Cohocton. Current plans will utilize a turbine at 100 meter (330 feet) hub height and will include a series of project roads and overhead and underground collection and transmission lines throughout the project area.

The project will be subject to the New York State Article 10 Siting Process and will also be required to obtain other state, local and federal permits prior to construction and operation. If built the project would result in an estimated 320,000 tons of CO2 emission reductions, and will span up to 40,000 acres.

Power projects in NY are now permitting using the Article X Process.  Information on the Process can be found by clicking the links below.  Please check this site often for updates on the progress of the Baron Winds Wind Project.
