BP's Tatics in Cape Vincent Ny

Friday, February 5, 2016

Take home message from Feb. 4, 2016 meeting between Iberdrola and Clayton Planning Board:

  1. Iberdrola seeking three permits for meteorological towers.
  2. New met tower data needed for newer, more modern turbine models.
  3. Iberdrola will be going to Town of Orleans with similar met tower request.
  4. Horse Creek project will have larger, multi-town footprint than previous version.
  5. Modern turbine models will be between 2.5 - 3.5 MW, larger than Horse Creek’s previous plan..
  6. Iberdrola recently sought new connection request with ISO for a 250 MW project, twice what was previously planned for the Horse Creek project..
  7. Jenny Briot explained turbines will have larger output, but not taller. (hard to believe).
  8. Iberdrola attorney was anxious to move the permitting process forward ASAP.
