ALBANY — The New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment (Siting Board) today granted approval to Atlantic Wind, LLC to build and operate a wind farm in Lewis and Jefferson counties. The Siting Board’s decision follows a detailed review and robust public participation process to ensure that the North Country wind farm meets or exceeds all siting requirements. Deer River Wind and other wind and solar projects currently under development are vital to meet the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act’s (CLCPA) aggressive carbon reduction and clean energy targets.
