Town of Dunkirk enacts wind moratorium

The Dunkirk Observer reports that the Town Board of the Town of Dunkirk (in Chautauqua County on the southeastern shore of Lake Erie) has passed a 12-month moratorium on the development of wind projects to allow the Town time to study the issue and issue regulations.

Chautauqua County is fairly windy of course. NYISO in its 4/22/2008 interconnection queue listed six (6) projects in the County totalling over 600 megawatts in nameplate generation: Pomfret, New Grange Wind Farm, Ball Hill Windpark, Concord Wind, Ripley-Westfield Wind, State Line Wind.
