Has BP thrown in the towel?

This past September ,following a failed attempt to sell all of their wind asserts , BP announced that they are selling their project development business including Cape Vincent.

Sparkspread [an energy investment media group] reported in September that the 10-member developmental team for BP wind would be terminated by December 31, 2013. This would include Richard Chandler, BP's development leader for the Cape Vincent Wind Farm project proposal.
In a letter dated October 25, 2013 BP notified the Siting Board the sale of the Cape project by year's-end ,and that it is no longer involved in the stipulation phase of Art.10 and that any stipulation agreements will be finalized by the "new owner."
Opting out of the Stipulation Phase of the Article 10 Pr-Application process is equivalent to opting out of Article 10. If BP's development team is gone and BP has opted out of Article 10, then what is left?

The Public Service Commission has scheduled a procedural
meeting to be held December 09,2013 at the Cape Vincent elementary school.
The agenda of the conference will include a discussion of the meaning of recent correspondence from the Applicant, the Town of Cape Vincent,and how the content of such correspondence relates to the Article 10 process.
Considering BP's last letter to the Public Service Commission regarding their opting out of the stipulation process, will BP even show up?
Has BP bailed?
Will the new owner be at the meeting?
 Has anyone seen this man?
Was Chandler's October meeting with BP wind lease holders nothing more than a royal kiss off ?


Will Chandler and Harris be performing their duet next Monday, or will Harris be playing a solo act in BP's Swan song?

I will be there Monday Night to heal the community.
and tell the PSC it is all the fault of
the blogs who are spreading hate
around the community.

I can hardly wait until Mon. to shake Richard Chandler's hand and wish him luck in his new job.

I'm pretty sure Chandler will be a no-show. He has moved on. Will the leaseholders be able to move on?

The thought of Harris doing a swan lake-like ballet in a tutu with ballet slippers is comforting to me. Such a long performance - ups and downs, tears and laughter, tension and anxiety, but now the end is near. Ever so slowly Harris/BP will move, spin and fall to the floor in exhaustion. The dance, project and torment for our town will have ended with the ballet. Perfect gift to this town for this season. Merry Christmas to all and got to hell BP!
