CHAMBER PROMOTES INVENERGY AND GREEN LINE PROJECTS  -  -

 

     The North Country Chamber of Commerce, northern New York's largest business and economic development organization, is voicing its strong support for the Invenergy Bull Run wind farm project in northern Clinton County and the Vermont Green Line Project, a joint venture of Anbaric and National Grid which is competing to provide green energy to southern New England, involving a proposed major transmission facility in Beekmantown.

 

     "The North Country Chamber is fully joined with the North Country Regional Economic Development Council in making our region a growing center of production for renewable energy," states Garry Douglas, Chamber President and Co-Chair of the North Country REDC. "Wind is a key component of this economic strategy and the partnership of these two projects presents an extraordinary opportunity to increase our production while also building connections to new markets. These two projects together will enhance the North Country's current role and future attractiveness as a center for renewable energy, while directly leveraging an extraordinary capital investment with all of the quality construction jobs that will accompany the two projects, and bringing decades of benefit to area taxpayers.All while directly implementing one of the key strategic aims for the North Country economy targeted in the Regional Economic Development Council's plans."
