A wind development planned by Invenergy has received funding from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.
The 105.8-MW Number Three Wind Farm, to be built in Lewis County for operation by 2019, is part of the initiative by Governor Andrew Cuomo to issue $360 million in funds for 11 renewable energy projects as part of the Clean Energy Standard, which mandates that 50 percent of the state’s electricity come from renewable energy sources by 2030.
“Invenergy is committed to investing in clean energy in the state of New York and we thank Governor Cuomo for his vision and for being a champion for the development of clean energy,” said Invenergy’s Director of Renewable Development, Eric Miller. “The community in Lewis County has been very receptive to us and public feedback everywhere has been very positive. We’re looking forward to working with NYSERDA on this project going forward.”
The amount of funding Number Three Wind Farm was not disclosed.
Invenergy currently has 220 MW of wind projects operational in New York, with another 1,165 of wind and solar projects in development across the state.
The projects include the Clean Energy Link, which would consist of four wind and two solar facilities with a combined capacity of 700 MW.
