Cohocton Wind looks over the lush farmland of Cohocton, NY, taking advantage of the significant wind resource rolling over the hills. The 50 wind turbines that make up the project generate up to 125 MW of clean, safe energy - that’s enough electricity to power about 50,000 homes annually.  The project is helping New York State move closer to its goal of 30% renewable energy sources by 2015 (30 x 15). 

In addition to providing clean power to the region, First Wind has been an active member of the Cohocton Community. At Thanksgiving, First Wind donated 200 turkeys to the Lighthouse Food pantry, and our Operations staff volunteered at the food give-away. First Wind has also sponsored the Cochocton Lego Robotics Club for two years, which is made up of three teams. The Transporters Team earned the Innovative Design Award and the Robot Performance Award for earning the most points at the robot competition table, qualifying them to advance to the University of Rochester Semifinals, where 34 teams were vying for one available slot to the World tournament. This year’s team earned 8th place in the robot competition out of those 34 teams, improving upon their placing from the year before.
