Please join us for a Chateaugay Wind Community Meeting!
We look forward to meeting with the community to answer questions and discuss the plans to repower the Chateaugay wind park, and the transition of ownership to AES.
This community meeting will be in an open format: updated project information will be displayed on boards throughout the room, with AES representatives available at each station to answer questions. There will be no formal presentation.
Community members are welcome to stop by anytime during the times listed below to learn about the wind park repower and talk with the project team. The same information will be provided at both sessions. Light refreshments will be provided.

Chateaugay Wind, located in the Town of Chateaugay in Franklin County, New York, is an existing 106.5 MW wind park planned to be repowered by AES. This project reduces carbon dioxide emissions by an estimated 135,705 metric tons each year, producing enough electricity to power approximately 24,600 homes annually.
Operational since 2009, Chateaugay Wind is a project to which AES is excited to bring new life. The repowering of the wind park will incorporate significant component and control systems replacement with design improvements, resulting in greater energy production and improved energy reliability and availability. Repowering will ensure continued, significant economic benefits to the local community via HCA (Host Community Agreements) and PILOT (Payments in Lieu of Taxes) agreements.
AES is proposing to use all the existing sites and support facilities that have already been established for Chateaugay Wind. The existing wind turbine towers will not be replaced or relocated, though the existing foundations may require modifications to accommodate the repower. Where feasible, AES will replace turbine drivetrains, rotors, hubs, and blades. Generators will be either refurbished or replaced based on the condition of the individual generators, and all existing project facilities and points of interconnection will be used as-is. No changes to the project area, number of generators, access roads, or electrical support systems are expected.
