June 8 (Renewables Now) - The New York Siting Board has given Invenergy LLC the green light to proceed with its 340-MW Alle-Catt wind farm project that will spread in three counties of the state.

The project was granted a certificate of environmental compatibility and public need with unanimous support by the board, the developer said last week. Through Alle-Catt Wind Energy LLC, it will be able to build and operate the USD-454-million (EUR 401.6m) wind farm that will be installed in Allegany, Cattaraugus and Wyoming counties.

The board’s examiners have concluded that the implementation of the proposed project will align with the state’s energy policy and will be a “beneficial addition” to its power production capacity. Additionally, it will help improve fuel diversity, grid reliability and enhance grid modernisation.

Planned to use up to 116 turbines, the Alle-Catt wind park will cover nearly 30,000 acres of private land. Once up and running at end-2022, it will be able to generate enough electricity to cover the consumption of 134,000 homes per year. Invenergy plans to initiate construction works in the fourth quarter of 2021.
