Town of Windsor Supervisor, Carolyn Price said, “The Town of Windsor has experienced growth from energy projects. With another energy project, Bluestone Wind, growth continues. The Host Community Agreement and Payment In Lieu of Taxes will provide new revenue from property that has been tax exempt. New revenue is good news for the Town of Windsor.” The project is proposed to place 27 wind turbines in the towns of Windsor and Sanford. Broome County Executive Jason Garnar said in a press release “Broome County supports the Bluestone Wind project. It would provide a major capital investment in Eastern Broome with hundreds of construction and operation jobs and the significant payments to host landowners will inject new momentum into our local economy. Finally, the towns, school districts and county all stand to benefit from over $45 million worth of revenue from the project over 30 years. We simply cannot afford to allow excessive red tape and regulation to hold back new investment and jobs in Broome County. To keep our children here after they graduate, we need to support local businesses in every way possible.” While many residents are against the idea of wind turbines being placed in their towns, many town officials have said that they think it will be positive for the area. (WBNG)- The group, Broome County Concerned Residents will be heading to Albany Monday to oppose the Calpine Project. The town Supervisors for the towns of Windsor and Sanford also spoke out as well, saying that the wind turbines will help the tax revenue. Meanwhile, Town Supervisor for the town of Sanford Dewey Decker said on the impact of the Host Community Agreement, “The Town is trying to stay down the middle. There is a positive: anyone who is paying taxes will benefit from this, not only on the town tax, but on the school tax and the county tax. People who do not like the project will benefit also.” The New York State siting board is meeting at 10 a.m. Monday to consider Calpine’s application to build the facility.
