The New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) has approved construction plans - along with necessary infrastructure improvements needed - for a 5.6-mile 230 kV transmission line for the construction of the 127 MW Noble Wethersfield wind farm in Wyoming County, N.Y.
 
In granting final approval of the environmental management and construction plan (EM&CP), the PSC will allow construction of the substation, the switchyard, access roads and the transmission facility. The transmission line will run from Wethersfield to Orangeville, both located in Wyoming County.

"Wind farm projects such as Noble Wethersfield, which generate electricity from renewable sources, increase energy diversity and promote a cleaner, healthier environment," says Garry Brown, cairman of the PSC. "Approval of the environmental management and construction plan, while taking into account environmental and construction-impact concerns, is an important step for this particular project."

As part of the PSC order, the wind farm owners will apply the environmental and agricultural protection and restoration measures appropriate to all activities at the approved facilities, as described in the EM&CP, in addition to other requirements.
