The 164-foot tower was proposed by Adirondack Wind Partners to gather data on wind conditions on Barton Mines land in North Creek.
A similar tower is already up, and the partnership of Barton Group and Reunion Power of Vermont has proposed putting eight to 10 towers about 400 feet tall in the area to generate power to sell.
Barton Vice President Jim McAndrew said data so far seem to indicate that the area would support a wind park.
