Two open houses scheduled for wind energy project in Barre
ALBION – Heritage Wind will have two open houses at its Albion office for community members to learn about a proposed project in Barre. Apex Clean Energy is proposing to build a 200-megawatt wind energy facility in Barre.
Community members learn more about the project, meet members of the team, ask questions, and share feedback during open houses from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday and 4 to 6 p.m. on Monday. The sessions will be held at the Apex office, 49 North Main St., Albion.
“Apex has been working in the town of Barre for two years,” Project Developer Ben Yazman said. “During that time, we have held conversations with the Town Board, residents, landowners, state agencies, and other stakeholders to inform our development work. We are eager to share what we’ve learned and to answer questions, particularly regarding the community benefits this wind project can bring to Barre and Orleans County.”
Project staff invite the public to stop by if they have questions or wish to schedule a more formal meeting or presentation. Heritage Wind team members can be reached at 585-563-5137 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Office hours are also posted at www.heritagewindpower.com.
