BP ‘terminating’ Cape Vincent Wind Project

BP Wind Energy is pulling out of Cape Vincent after unsuccessful attempts to sell its 285-megawatt industrial wind farm project.

“With this termination, Cape Vincent Wind Power LLC will withdraw from the New York State Article X permitting process and will wind down all of its contracts and agreements for the project. We expect this to be completed in the coming months,” said BP spokesman Jason Ryan in an email to the Times.

For nearly a decade, commercial wind development has been a dividing force between year-round residents — who welcome the project as a new source of revenue for rural landowners and local municipalities — and seasonal residents, many of whom fear industrial turbines in the community would devalue their homes and waterfront cottages.
