Invenergy to build 340MW wind farm in New York, state’s largest to date

Electrek:

New York state has approved its biggest wind farm yet. The $454 million project by Invenergy LLC will sit on 30,000 acres southeast of Buffalo.

The Alle-Catt wind farm, which will feature 116 wind turbines, will be capable of generating 340 megawatts, enough to power around 134,000 homes, the New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment announced yesterday.

Alle-Catt will generate up to $78 million in local property tax revenues over 20 years, and local governments will receive $3.2 million annually in payments from the wind farm. It will create around 182 construction jobs with a payroll of $15 million and will provide up to 13 permanent facility operation jobs.

Steuben County’s Canisteo plant was previously New York’s largest approved wind project, with a capacity of 290 megawatts.

New York’s goal is to achieve net zero in the electricity sector by 2040.
