Supporting the development of a large wind farm

Stantec is the lead environmental and permitting consultant for the 100MW Deer River Wind Farm. In 2019, Stantec submitted an application to the NYS Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment pursuant to Article 10 of the Public Service Law, seeking approvals for construction and operation of the wind farm. The Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need is anticipated to be issued in late summer 2020.

Since 2018, we have collaborated with a multidisciplinary environmental, engineering, and legal team to prepare a complete application. In addition to compiling the application, we conducted ecological and biological surveys, prepared the visual impact analysis, wetland delineation and wetland mitigation plan, supported stakeholder engagement and agency outreach, provided expert witness testimony and consulted with federal and state agencies to minimize and mitigate for impacts to sensitive birds and rare bats.

The Deer River Wind Farm would produce enough clean energy to power nearly 25,000 homes annually. If built, it would help the State of New York achieve Nation-Leading Climate Target goals of 70% of the state’s power supplied by renewable sources by the year 2030.
