Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS
Steuben County - The Steuben County Industrial Development Agency, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Howard Wind Power Project. Copies of the Final EIS may be obtained from the contact person listed below. The action consists of approximately 25 wind turbines, each with a maximum (or nameplate) capacity of 2.5 megawatts (MW), resulting in a maximum anticipated generating capacity of approximately 62 MW. In addition to the wind turbines, the Project involves construction of associated components including two permanent meteorological towers, a system of gravel access roads, electrical collection and communication cable networks, an operation and maintenance (O&M) building, and an on-site collection substation and switchyard. The Project will be developed on leased private land, totaling approximately 2,390 acres. Project construction is anticipated to occur in a single phase, starting in May 2009 and being completed by November 2009. Once built, the wind turbines and associated components will operate in almost completely automated fashion. The Project will, however, employ approximately six operations and maintenance personnel. The wind turbine currently proposed is the Clipper Liberty C99 (or an equivalent machine), with a minimum wind speed of approximately 4 m/s (13 mph) required to generate electricity. This turbine's maximum rotational speed is 15.5 rpm. Each wind turbine has a computer to control critical functions, monitor wind conditions, and report data. The project is located off of Buena Vista Road, Burt Hill Road, Hughes Road, South Woods Road, Spencer Hill Road, Turnpike Road, and Wilson Road in the Town of Howard, New York.
