Alle Catt Wind received its Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need on June 3rd, 2020 with unanimous approval by the siting board members. That concludes the Article 10 review process, although many more months of Compliance Filings have to be worked through and filed before construction can begin.

The Alle-Catt Wind Farm is being developed by Invenergy's six-person New York development team located in central New York, with support from engineers, construction managers and other professionals at Invenergy's headquarters in Chicago, Illinois.
The Alle-Catt Wind Farm will boost the local economies of Allegany, Cattaraugus and Wyoming Counties and create jobs, all while generating clean energy to meet New York's growing electricity needs. We are proud to contribute to the economic growth of our host communities in western New York while solidifying our state and national energy independence.
Invenergy is developing Alle-Catt on approximately 30,000 acres of private land it is leasing in the towns of Arcade, Centerville, Farmersville, Freedom, Rushford and Machias. The project enjoys the support of over 300 local tax-paying residents, crosses three county lines and will generate a tremendous amount of energy and income for the local communities.

Wind power is the new cash crop for farmers and landowners. Each year the Alle-Catt Wind Farm will generate $7 million in revenue to the community in lease and PILOT payments, taxes, and operations and maintenance spending.
