New Wind Issue Paper Available

The commission has just completed a new issue paper titled The Next Generation of Wind Farms on Tug Hill. As of September 2016, there are six proposed wind farms being planned for the Tug Hill region; four are in various stages of the permitting process and two in early stages of planning. The issue paper provides answers to common questions that municipalities may have about commercial wind farms, how they are permitted, what should be considered and steps municipalities can take to be sure they are part of the planning process. The paper is available on our website
or you can contact us for a copy.
