Positive Declaration

Madison County - The Town of Madison Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Rolling Upland Wind Farm may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. The action involves a proposal by Rolling Upland Wind Farm, LLC a fully owned subsidiary of EDP Renewables North America LLC (EDPR), to construct the Rolling Upland Wind Farm (RUWF), a wind-powered electric generating facility. The wind farm will include 36 wind turbine generators (WTG) with name plate generating capacity of 60 megawatts (MW). The project will also include electrical collection system (approximately 17 miles), gravel access roads (approximately 11 miles), temporary staging areas, and two (2) meteorological towers. The project will use the existing substation at the Madison Wind Farm to connect to the power grid.

The project area includes a geographical area of approximately 7,000 acres. The wind farm facilities will be located within a small portion of the project area, approximately 240 acres, referred to as the "Project Corridor". The Project Corridor will be located on leased private land.

The Project is planned to be under construction and fully operationally in 2015.

Specifically the project includes:

  • Construction and Operation of 36 WTG. The proposed Wind Turbine Generators (WTG) will be a GE 1.6 MW generator with a 100 meter blade rotor diameter and a hub height of 100 meters, for a total maximum height of 150 meters (492 feet) from a fully-erect blade tip to ground.
  • Construction of a 34.5 kilovolt (kV) Electrical Connection System (ECS) connecting all WTG.
  • Construction of gravel access roads to each WTG.
  • Construction of meteorological monitoring towers.
  • Interconnection to the power grid at the existing Madison Wind Farm substation.

The project is located in the Town of Madison, New York.
