21-T-0059 Alle-Catt Wind Energy LLC Notice of Virtual Public Statement Hearing


By Order dated June 3, 2020, the New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment (Siting Board) granted Alle-Catt Wind Energy LLC (ACWE) authority to construct, own, and operate a 340-megawatt wind electric generating facility (the Project).1 In doing so, the Siting Board determined that the Project will meet all statutory requirements for certification under Article 10 of the Public Service Law (PSL), including a finding that the Project will be a beneficial addition to the electric generation capacity of the State.2

On February 10, 2021, ACWE filed an application (Application) for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need and an associated Water Quality Certificate authorizing the construction, ownership, and operation of a transmission facility (Transmission Facility) interconnecting the planned Project to a new point of interconnection (POI) (Limelake Switchyard) that will be built adjacent to the existing Homer City-Stolle Road 345 kilovolt (kV) line owned by New York State Electric and Gas Corporation (NYSEG) and National Grid. The Transmission Facility will consist of a 10-mile 345 kV transmission line and a new POI Switchyard. The transmission line will connect the Project’s collection substation to the new POI switchyard that will be built adjacent to the existing Homer City-Stolle Road 345 kV line owned by NYSEG and National Grid. Except for approximately 500 feet where the Transmission Facility will be buried under the existing Homer City-Stolle Road line and enters the new POI switchyard, the Transmission Facility will be an overhead facility. The Transmission Facility will be located entirely within the towns of Yorkshire and Freedom, in Cattaraugus County.

Under New York State Law, the Commission may adopt or reject the Applicant's proposal, in whole or part, or modify it. In doing so, the Commission will consider input from the the participating parties and the general public.
