Wind power hits headwinds in New York 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s push for more renewable energy took a direct hit on September 12 when the Fort Drum Regional Liaison Organization announced its opposition to eight proposed wind projects in the northern part of the state due to the deleterious effect those projects could have on radar systems and military aviation. The move by the Watertown-based group, which is dedicated to assuring Fort Drum’s future, will likely derail more than 1,000 megawatts of proposed wind generation capacity in the state.The effort to protect the base from the encroachment of Big Wind provides yet another example of the backlash against wind-energy development in New York.
