ALBANY — The New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment (Siting Board) today granted approval to Alle-Catt Wind Energy LLC (Alle-Catt) to build and operate a wind farm in Allegany, Cattaraugus, and Wyoming counties. The Siting Board’s decision follows a detailed review and robust public participation process to ensure that the Western New York wind farm meets or exceeds all siting requirements. Alle-Catt 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.
