Apex updates plans for 110-MW Galloo Island Wind project in New York

Galloo Island Wind LLC on May 9 filed with the New York State Public Service Commission an update to the final Public Involvement Plan, which is an integral part of the commission’s project review process.

Hudson North Country Wind 1 LLC had filed a final PIP in August 2015 for the Galloo Island Wind Energy Facility.  Subsequent to  his filing, ownership of the project was transferred from Hudson North Country Wind 1 to Galloo  Island  Wind, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Apex Clean Energy LLC.

To avoid any confusion, and at the request of the NY Public Service Department Staff, Galloo Island Wind prepared  this update  to the previously filed PIP to highlight the change in ownership  and to refresh sections of the PIP  regarding contact information for the change in ownership. In addition, this PIP updatetakes the opportunity to note a small change to the generating capacity of the project.   

The final PIP dated August 2015 indicated a planned nameplate capacity of around 102.3 MW. The current configuration is for a nameplate capacity of about 110.4 MW. The final PIP indicated a project of up to 31 wind tubines each generating up to 3.3 MW per unit. The current configuration includes up to 32 turbines.
