Future uncertain for Alle-Catt Wind Farm tax breaks

“I think the board would have to take a sincere look at the whole project to see if it were truly wanted at the local level,” Wiktor said. “It’s an issue the IDA will have to face. It’s going to come down to what do they hear in terms of local support and opposition.” With Article 10, a project could be approved with limited or no local support.

A sharp slap of reality

The payments from Maple Ridge will decline, and the payments from proposed future projects — Number Three, Deer River and Copenhagen — will not come close to matching the revenue from the county’s first wind project. The county should quickly tell Avangrid that its first PILOT will be its last, and that Lewis County won’t continue to subsidize its healthy profits.

While Mr. Gray said he would like full taxation for the full assessment from developer Avangrid Renewables in a potential payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreement for its Lewis County project’s transmission line, which will run through the town of Rodman, he said he would bring a proposal to the Legislature that would mirror the PILOT agreement for the Copenhagen Wind Farm.

Somerset may tax energy projects

"Our town, school and county have a decidedly mixed experience with PILOTs, as have many across the state,” resident Randy Atwater said. “We know that our community does not want this project, but if we lose the battle and the project proceeds, I'd prefer the project be taxed on the full value of the installation.”
