Invenergy has proposed a new transmission project that would bring at least 500 megawatts of installed wind and solar capacity into the Long Island Power Authority's grid. The Clean Energy Link project would source the electricity from a series of projects in North Carolina, Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania that have a combined capacity of 701 MW through the Poseidon undersea cable.

A wind farm proposed in upstate New York wouldn't have an impact on operations at Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station, US Air Force Reserve Col. Joseph Janik said. The air station is replacing eight C-130 tanker planes with KC-135 tanker planes, and the switch means low-altitude flights will no longer be conducted, he said.
