Niagara County committee looks at Lake Ontario wind project

Like many towns in Jefferson County, Niagara County legislators have formed a committee to consider the positives and drawbacks of wind power in their area. In this case, they're looking at a possible offshore wind power project backed by the New York Power Authority.

The committee has two weeks to finish its work.

NYPA has not yet said where its five bidders want an offshore project. But the authority has said it will not put a project in Eastern Lake Ontario.
