CAPE VINCENT — BP Wind Energy will not have to modify its preliminary scoping statement for the proposed Cape Vincent Wind Farm even if the public objects to its contents, according to the state Public Service Commission.
“While the law requires a potential applicant to respond to comments on the PSS (preliminary scoping statement), it does not require the developer to adopt the recommendations made during the preliminary scoping phase,” said PSC’s acting secretary Jeffrey C. Cohen in response to a Jan. 29 letter from Cape Vincent’s town supervisor, Urban C. Hirschey.[Watertown Times]
