Chateaugay, NY – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) visited Jericho Rise Wind Farm yesterday, a new site being constructed to bring renewable energy to the towns of Bellmont and Chateaugay. Congresswoman Stefanik’s office assisted in the permitting process for this wind farm with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
“I was very impressed with the site and project that will bring more renewable energy to our district,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I support an all of the above energy approach and was pleased to help pass critical tax credits last year to support more wind and solar power. By increasing our use of renewable energy from sites like Jericho Rise, we can continue to lower energy costs for hard working North Country families while working to increase our nation’s energy independence. Thanks to the team at EDP Renewables for the tour.”
