Jefferson County - The New York State Energy, Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed installation of an 8.9 kW Wind Turbine at the Burrville Cider Mill will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the installation of an 8.9 kW wind turbine (23 foot diameter blades) on a 140 foot guyed-lattice tower on the property of Greg Steiner for the Burrville Cider Mill will not have a significant impact on the environment. NYSERDA is an involved agency with respect to this installation because it will be providing a financial incentive to the landowner under the New York State Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) program, which NYSERDA administers. In 2004, the Public Service Commission adopted a final Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GElS), which was issued on August 26,2004 by the New York State Department of Public Service as a part of the RPS proceeding. The GElS found that, given the various technology and / or fuel specific eligibility miles, the RPS program, generally, would have a beneficial impact on the environment.
The GElS found that wind energy facilities, in particular, have important environmental advantages over conventional fossil-fueled generation sources because they do not produce and hazardous waste. Based on the information provided in the attached Full Environmental Assessment Form, NYSERDA's Site Assessment Report, and NYSERDA's experience with wind turbine installations of this type and size, the installation of this wind turbine will not result in a significant adverse impact on the environment.
The project is located at 2618 Cramer Road in the Town of Rodman, New York.
