LACKAWANNA, N.Y. (AP) - A wind farm constructed at the site of a former Buffalo-area steel plant is expanding.
Boston-based First Wind says it's installed six additional turbines at its Steel Winds site in Lackawanna, on the Lake Erie shoreline. The project is now capable of producing 35 megawatts of electricity, enough to power about 9,000 homes.
Company executives and elected officials, including Congressman Brian Higgins, will be at the site Tuesday to mark completion of the expansion.
Steel Winds occupies brownfields left behind more than 30 years ago with the closing of the Bethlehem Steel mill.
