The action involves the construction of thirty-three (33) wind turbine generators and associated improvements that are to be located on lands approximately 8,016 acres in size. The project has significant, long-term beneficial effects on the use and conservation of energy resources, because of its ability to generate electricity without any fossil-fuel emissions and a potentially significant adverse impact on, among others, visual resources and wildlife. The project is located south of NYS Route 23 and extends to the east of NYS Route 10 and to the west of NYS Route 30 predominately within the Towns of Roxbury and Stamford, New York.
