Apex kicks off review process for 201 MW wind project in New York

Apex Clean Energy Holdings LLC filed Oct. 31 at the New York State Public Service Commission for an approval on a 201 MW wind power project, according to GenerationHub.

The Lighthouse Wind farm is a proposed 201 MW project located in the town of Somerset, Niagara County, New York and the town of Yates, Orleans County, New York. It would be owned and developed by Apex Clean Energy Holdings. The project’s transmission interconnection request has been submitted for the Kintigh Substation.

The New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment requires applicants proposing to construct a major electric generating facility to submit a public involvement program plan for review by the Department of Public Service at least 150 days prior to filing a preliminary scoping statement. That plan was filed on Oct. 31.

The principals of Apex Clean Energy, said project documents, have developed over $10 billion of operating renewable energy facilities in the United States. These facilities are located throughout the nation, ranging in size from the 20 MW Steel Winds project in New York to the 300 MW Canadian Hills Wind project in Oklahoma.
