Apex not submitting Lighthouse Wind application this year

YATES — Apex Clean Energy has announced it will not be submitting the Lighthouse Wind permit application in 2019 as originally planned last year.

“Though we are not able to offer a more specific application timeline, we will provide stakeholders with updated information regarding permitting actions, adjustments in design, and anticipated scheduling as that information becomes available,” said Cat Mosley, public engagement manager, in a statement released Thursday. “We look forward to identifying the proper time to advance those benefits to the region.”

The Lighthouse Wind project currently envisions a 47-turbine array spread out between the towns of Yates and Somerset, although Yates will only see eight windmills within its borders. The project the windmills would have a hub height of 345 feet, a maximum tip height of 591 feet and a rotor radius of 246 feet with the current proposed model being a Vestas V150 4.2.
