YNN reports on Cape Vincent Meeting with BP's Richard Chandler

JEFFERSON COUNTY, N.Y. -- A meeting was held in Jefferson County over a wind energy project that has divided the community. BP Wind Energy was recently reprimanded by the state public service commission for not reaching out to Cape Vincent residents with their plans for a wind farm.
So Tuesday night, the corporation was at a community meeting with a revised plan for a 124-turbine project in the town. BP presented a plan it's submitting to the state, which allows a sitting board to override local zoning laws in approving large power projects.
