Horse Creek Wind Farm
Working Together for a Clean Energy Future
Harnessing renewable energy resources like wind can lead to a better and cleaner future for all communities, as wind turbines create virtually no air pollution, no water pollution or hazardous emissions and consume no water. Notably, homegrown energy creates local jobs and energy independence, and helps support a strong manufacturing base in the U.S.
Avangrid Renewables is part of the Iberdrola Group, an energy pioneer with the largest renewable asset base of any company in the world. Our projects have brought real economic benefits for local business owners, schools and communities as a whole. We are proud to be a part of the communities where we live and work and are excited to work together with the North Country community on the proposed Horse Creek Wind Farm to create lasting economic
opportunities for the area.

|The proposed Horse Creek Wind Farm would include the towns of Brownville, Clayton, Lyme and Orleans in Jefferson County, New York.|
Wind Farm Generation Capacity
Approximately 205 megawatts (MW) of renewable wind energy, which is enough clean, homegrown electricity to power nearly 50,000 average New York homes annually.
Expected Local Economic Benefits
|150 construction jobs, and opportunities for local construction and construction supply vendors|
|10 permanent, full-time jobs|
|Up to $1 million annually in direct lease, easement and neighbor agreement payments to landowners ($15 million over 30 years)|
|Up to $1.5 million annually in increased revenues to county and local municipal tax bases to help defray costs for schools, public safety and county services ($23 million over 30 years)|
|$5 million estimated project spending on local goods and services during development and construction|
