Dear Neighbor,
Are you aware the APA has quietly made a move toward embracing industrial wind and solar development inside the Blue Line in their November 9, 2018, “Policy on Renewable Energy Production and Energy Supply Guidance” document? We believe the impact of this decision would scar the Adirondacks forever.

Weigh in on this extremely important issue regarding the future of the Adirondacks at Although the deadline for comments is December 3rd, don’t be dissuaded from voicing your concerns.

Please, learn what Governor Cuomo’s "50 by 30" goal really means for the North Country and the Adirondacks. We encourage you to further research each topic presented on this website to better educate yourself, your friends and family. Support the principle of Home Rule in our NYS Constitution, and insist upon your right to control the future of your towns and counties. Your northern neighbors from Hopkinton and Parishville fought this battle for over 2 years.

Urge your local government to adopt a Moratorium on wind and solar development to allow them time to research and create laws that will protect you from many negative health, environmental, and economic impacts.

We believe all members of every community should be protected and fully informed whenever large wind and solar projects are under consideration.

"For example, on wind energy, we get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That's the only reason to build them. They don't make sense without the tax credit."
