Jim Griffin: For Wind To Happen In Hornellsville, It Has To Happen In Hartsville First
HORNELLSVILLE, NY - Industrial Development Agency Leaders Jamie Johnson and Jim Griffin met with Hornellsville Town officials at a special meeting held Tuesday evening. Johnson said that the best wind is in Hartsville and Hornellsville, but that several wind companies were discouraged from moving forward.
Johnson also stated that the main focus now for Everpower Wind, is Cohocton and Wayland. The SCIDA Director said that wind companies will focus their efforts in the path of least resistance.
Jim Griffin explained to the officials present that the Town of Hartsville has to come on board or nothing would happen for a Hornellsville wind project. "They're going to gravitate to towns that want them, they won't go to the enemy," Griffin said.
