Apex Clean Energy on Monday entered the final phase of the state Article 10 review process for its Galloo Island Wind project by submitting its official project application. “We’re glad to have it submitted,” said Neil T. Habig, senior director of project development for the developer, Apex Clean Energy, adding that the application follows more than two years of work in the process.
With the application submitted, the developer must wait 60 days for the state Department of Public Service to decide whether the application is complete. Once the department deems the application complete, the Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment will have one year to review the application.
Apex Clean Energy plans to build 30 turbines on Galloo Island in the town of Hounsfield for its 108.9 megawatt project as well as a 32-mile underwater transmission cable that will interconnect with a substation in Oswego.
