Project Details

Additional Documents:



Niagara and Erie propose to extend the useful life of the wind turbines by engaging in a replacement project that would update the equipment and continue to generate real property taxes under a custom payment -in-lieu of tax (“PILOT) arrangement.

Due to persistent maintenance issues with the existing turbines, which are no longer being manufactured, Niagara and Erie will replace the existing nacelle (enclosed engine housing), rotor, hub and blades for each turbine with new equipment from a different manufacturer without disrupting the existing tower, foundation and electrical equipment.
