EDF Renewables is in the process of developing the Collins Wind Project in Erie County, New York. The proposed 200 MW wind project could be operational as early as 2031. 

New York State is leading the nation in renewable energy with a goal of generating 70% of its electricity with renewable energy by 2030, and EDF Renewables is leading the renewable energy charge starting with the Collins Wind Project (the Project).  A growing solution to energy demands, wind power is a safe, clean technology to power our New York residents and businesses. The initiatives outlined in the State Energy Plan can be found here. 

The Facility will safely generate enough clean, renewable electricity to power over 85,000 New York households. The Facility will interconnect to the New York power grid via a new Point of Interconnection (POI) in the Town of Brant, tapping into the New York Power Authority’s Dunkirk to Gardenville 230 kilovolt (“kV”) transmission lines east of the I-90, which is located west of the project area. Each wind turbine and road will use approximately 2 acres of land and the Project is expected to host between 30 and 40 wind turbines.
