Wind Project Holds Promise for Howard

EverPower presents proposal at Open House

(Howard) -- Wind developer EverPower Renewables discussed its proposed Howard Wind Project at an Open House today. Representatives from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) were also available to answer questions from the public. "EverPower Renewables wants to keep the public informed and up-do-date on this proposal," stated Kevin Sheen, Project Manager for the proposed Howard Wind Farm, "We believe this project can produce clean energy, provide income to the Town of Howard, help sustain the family farms that will "plant" the wind mills, and be a good neighbor," he continued. The proposed facility, consisting of twenty-five to thirty wind turbines located on private land in the Town of Howard, will have the capacity to produce about 50 megawatts of electricity. The project developer will enter into an agreement with local governments to make ongoing Payments In Lieu of Taxes (PILOTs) to the community and local schools, and will commence construction in 2006 or 2007 if approved. Wind power creates home grown electricity without pollution or ongoing fuel costs. Wind power is economically stable, as it does not depend on volatile oil or gas prices. Currently, EverPower is gathering metrological data on wind speeds, conducting studies on bird populations and migration patterns, and working with local government to begin the multi-year permitting process. "The Howard area has a reputation for steady, high winds" said Kevin Sheen. "If the wind data confirms the wind speeds, the studies meet the environmental requirements, and the community supports the proposed project, the area will gain a great source of additional revenue to help keep property and school taxes down and to do other much-needed projects". The proposed 50 mega watt wind project would provide enough electricity for more than 25,000 average New York families. If this same amount of energy would displace over 133,000 pounds of coal per year. A reduction of over 279,882,000 pounds of carbon dioxide (the main cause of global warming).
