State rep from Public Service will discuss Article 10 process on March 18 in Albion
ALBION – A representative from the State Department of Public Service will go through the Article 10 process during a 6:30 p.m. meeting on March 18 at Hoag Library.
The state created the Article 10 process for energy projects more than 25 megawatts, which includes many of the wind and solar energy projects proposed in the region.
Apex Clean Energy, for example, is proposing to construct 33 wind turbines in Barre that have a capacity for nearly 185 MWs.
The meeting on March 18 gives community members a chance to understand the Article 10 process and ask questions about the procedure for reviewing the large-scale energy projects.
The DPS representative will not address any specific Article 10 projects or proposed Article 10 projects, said Kerri Richardson, a member of the Barre Town Board.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo last month proposed a bigger state takeover of the process to speed up siting renewable energy projects.
