Cassadaga Wind Project

Chautauqua County, New York

The Cassadaga Wind project is a proposed 126 MW wind farm located in the Towns of Arkwright, Charlotte, and Cherry Creek in Chautauqua County, NY. The project will be located primarily on agricultural and recreational land and could include up to 48 turbines when completed. The project’s point of interconnection is National Grid’s 115kV lines 161 and 162 near the existing Moon Road substation in the Town of Stockton. If built, the project would result in an estimated 170,000 tons of CO2 emission reductions, and will span up to 40,000 acres

The project is subject to New York State’s Article 10 Siting Process and the project will also be required to obtain other state, local and federal permits prior to construction and operation. Additional information on the Article 10 Siting Process can be found by clicking the link below.
