Save Rural Steuben ...Citizens for Maintaining Our Rural Environment

Help Stop Wind Energy Projects That Will Destroy Our Community!

Citizens for Maintaining Our Rural Environment (CMORE) is a community coalition dedicated to preserving the health, economy, environment, beauty, and culture of rural Steuben County by opposing the Canisteo Wind Energy Project and the Eight Point Wind Energy Center Project.

Proposed by a privately-owned Chicago-based corporation, Invenergy Renewables LLC, Canisteo Wind Energy is a massive 35,000+ acre industrial wind power generation facility that will destroy the rural nature of our communities.  We neither need nor want up to 140 massive turbine towers of almost 600 feet in height, power lines, and associated infrastructure taking over the small towns of Cameron, Canisteo, Greenwood, Jasper, Troupsburg and West Union!

In addition to Canisteo Wind Energy, NextEra Energy Resources has proposed constructing an additional 31 turbine towers of similar height and impact as part of their Eight Point Wind Energy Project in the towns of Greenwood and West Union.

More than 170 of these 600 feet tall structures being constructed in six small Steuben County towns over the next few years is an unwelcomed assault on our homes, our health, our environment, and our way of life!  

WE MUST STAND UP AND PROTECT OUR COMMUNITIES FROM THIS INDUSTRIAL ONSLAUGHT BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

Both projects are currently under review via Article 10 – a New York law that takes away local Home Rule and transfers permitting authority to a state Siting Board lead by the heads of state agencies in Albany.
 
Our goal is to share our opinions, educate our neighbors about the harmful impacts of this project, and make sure our voices of opposition are heard by the politicians and decision-makers in Albany. 

We need you take the time to express your concerns and tell the Siting Board that Steuben County is the wrong place for both Invenergy’s Canisteo Wind Energy Project and NextEra’s Eight Point Wind Center.  It is simple and easy to do using the New York Department of Public Service website.
Please take a few minutes and make sure that your voice is not drowned out by the slick marketing messages and self-serving factual distortions from developers who do not have our communities’ best interests at heart.  You can post as many times and as often as you wish.
