Apex kicks off New York approval process for 200-MW Heritage Wind project

The Heritage Wind Farm LLC unit of Apex Clean Energy Holdings LLC on Sept. 23 filed with the New York State Public Service Commission a Public Involvement Program (PIP) plan for a proposed 200.1-MW project to be located in the Town of Barre, Orleans County, New York.

The company said the project’s interconnection request has been submitted for the existing National Grid Shelby-Sweden 115-kv power line. Under Article 10 of the state Public Service Law, the New York State Board on Electric Generating Siting and the Environment requires applicants proposing to construct a major electric generating facility to submit a PIP plan for review by the Department of Public Services (DPS) at least 150 days prior to the filing of a Preliminary Scoping Statement (PSS). Filed Sept. 23 was the preliminary PIP.

Said the company: “We look forward to working with the Siting Board to encourage public participation in the process and to obtain stakeholder input throughout the development process.”

The Project website is www.heritagewindpower.com. The website is currently active and is used to communicate relevant information about the project’s development.

A project contact is: Mark Goodwin, President and CEO, Apex Clean Energy, 310 4th Street NE, Suite 200, Charlottesville, VA 22902, telephone 434.220.7595.
