Cassadaga Wind Project, Chautauqua County, NY
- 126 MW
- Up to 58 wind turbines
- Approximately 170,000 tons of offset CO2 each year
- Around 40,000 acres in project area
The Cassadaga Wind project is a proposed 126 MW wind farm located in the Towns of Arkwright, Charlotte, and Cherry Creek in Chautauqua County, NY. The project will be located on primarily farmland and recreational land and could include up to 58 turbines when completed. The project’s point of interconnection is expected to be in the existing Niagra Mohawk Power Moon Road substation in the Town of Stockton. 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 170,000 tons of CO2 emission reductions, and will span up to 40,000 acres.
Power projects in NY are now permitting using the Article 10 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 Cassadaga Wind Project.
Article 10 Application
We are pleased to announce that the Article 10 Application for the Cassadaga Wind Project was filed with the New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment (Board) on May 27, 2016. This is the first project to ever file an Article 10 application under the current regulations, and this represents a significant milestone for the project. The Application contains a complete description of the proposed project, including detailed maps of the project layout, and results of the studies conducted. Within 60 days of the Application filing date, the Board will make a determination on whether the Application is complete, and if the Application is deemed complete, a date will be established for a public hearing.
