  • Create long-term jobs to support operations
  • Boost local economy and add commerce for local businesses during the construction and the operation
  • Provide significant tax revenues to the towns, county, and to local school districts
  • Provide quiet, emission free, reliable power to NYS
  • Help NYS achieve its goal of 70% clean power generation by 2030


Boralex will conduct public open house events as development progresses. More details will follow.
