Votes have consequences and the Jefferson County Legislature now knows that as the NY Power Authority says it will not guarentee to buy power from projects in the county...including projects already proposed....
After a contentious debate over tax breaks for a Galloo Island wind farm, county lawmakers voted not to allow any NYPA projects off shore in Lake Ontario.
Without a guarenteed buyer of the power produced, these projects don't cost out and will not be built.
Is that what the legislators wanted or were they just voting against NYPA to spare themselves more controversy ?
