Bluestone Wind Project

Public Information

Bluestone Wind, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Calpine Corporation, is proposing to submit an Application for Article 10 of the Public Service Law to construct a 125 megawatt (MW) wind powered electric generating facility to be in the towns of Windsor and Sanford, Broome County, New York.

Project: Bluestone Wind

Location: Windsor and Sanford, Broome County, New York 

Potential Capacity: 124 megawatts 

Number of Wind Turbines: 30-40 

Size: Approximately 10,000 acres 

Project Summary: The Bluestone Wind Farm is a proposed 124 MW, utility-scale wind energy project covering approximately 10,000 acres in the eastern Broome County, New York, towns of Windsor and Sanford.  The project proposes to interconnect into the New York State Electric and Gas Corporation (NYSEG) high-voltage transmission lines that traverse the area, delivering power into the NYISO transmission system.  Calpine began executing leases with landowner partners in late 2015 and continues its community outreach efforts to landowners, local officials and area residents.  

Community Benefits: Wind energy represents a viable, long-term revenue stream for families in the form of land-lease and easement-agreement payments during the development and operation of a wind farm.  Rural communities also benefit from public road enhancements and increased tax revenues to fund local infrastructure and public services, including school systems, hospitals, libraries and emergency services.  Moreover, construction, operations and maintenance create direct and indirect benefits of additional jobs and increased demand for local goods and services.
