Community-funded wind farm completes NY environmental review


ENFIELD, N.Y. (AP) - Local officials say the proposed Black Oak Wind Farm in the Finger Lakes town of Enfield has met all requirements under the state's environmental review process.

The Ithaca Journal reports that the state review was the last major step in the project's permitting review process.

The 11.9 megawatt project is the state's first community-owned wind farm, with any state resident eligible to be an investor if they meet financial requirements.

Cornell University has agreed to buy all the electricity it generations during its first 10 years.

Plans are for the wind farm to go online by the end of this year.
