Noble Bellmont drops 21-MW New York wind project

Noble Bellmont Windpark LLC filed a Jan. 24 notice with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that it no longer seeks to maintain its exempt wholesale generator (EWG) status since it won’t be building its power project after all.

Noble Bellmont filed a notice with FERC of self-certification of EWG status in 2008, in which it stated that it would own and operate a 21-MW wind facility and associated interconnection facilities that would be located near the Town of Bellmont, N.Y.

“Noble Bellmont has no immediate plans to develop the Bellmont Project and plans to request withdrawal of its market-based rate tariff in the near future,” the company said in the Jan. 24 filing. “Accordingly, Noble Bellmont will not satisfy the requirements for EWG status and therefore no longer seeks to maintain its EWG status.”
