Public invited to study details of wind farm


We thank the Watertown Daily Times for its front-page article on July 17 concerning the positive impact for Jefferson County landowners of the proposed Copenhagen Wind Farm transmission line.

On July 9, in cooperation with the town of Denmark Planning Board, the project developer, OwnEnergy, presented for public review and comment the NYS Draft Environmental Impact Statement. It details the entire project, which engages both Lewis and Jefferson counties.

This phase of the development, including the transmission line, is complex and involves many details. Some of them, including those related to the transmission line, were misquoted in the article (e.g., the width of the transmission line easement is 100 feet, not 1,000 feet).

A lot of enthusiasm has been generated in Denmark and adjacent townships by this wind power project as the municipalities and the developer continue to fine-tune every detail.

Complete copies of the DEIS are available for public study and commentary during regular business hours until Aug. 13 at the Denmark Town Offices, Roberts Road, and at the Carthage Free Library. The Denmark Town Board and OwnEnergy welcome input from the public and invite all interested parties to study the DEIS document to gain the most complete and accurate information concerning the proposed Copenhagen Wind Farm.
