High Bridge Wind, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Northland Power Inc., has submitted an Application for Article 10 of the Public Service Law to construct a 100 MW wind facility in the town of Guilford, located in Chenango County, New York. The project's former owner, Calpine, has transferred this process to Northland mid-process.
All New York State projects must follow the Article 10 Siting Process prior to construction and operation. High Bridge Wind submitted its application on August 12, 2019. The process required upfront funds of $100,800, to be given to municipalities and local parties to reduce expenses incurred during the process; 50% of these funds went to municipalities. These funds were awarded on October 29, 2019. An application supplement was submitted on January 17, 2020. Our application was deemed complete on March 16, 2020.
High Bridge is now pursuing the formal hearings and adjudication phase of the Article 10 process. We expect to have a date for the public statement hearing soon. More information on Article 10 can be found on the New York Department of Public Service's website.
