Re:
Case 12-F-041 0 Dear Supervisor Hirschey:

JEFFREY

EN
Actillg Secrelar ,
Thank you for your letter dated December
12
, 2012 regarding the Public Involvement Plan ( PfP ) filed
by
Cape Vincent Wind Power and your concern about possible conflicts
of
interest. You state
in
your letter that Cape Vincent Wind offered charitable donations 'to service groups
in
the Town
of
Cape Vincent,
an
activity which
is
not reflected
in
the PIP. You also expressed concern about a possible conflict
of
interest because the attorney for the project, John Harris,
is
married to Commissioner Maureen Harris, a member
of
the Public Service Commission (
 Co
mmission ). I hope the following responds to your concerns. As you know, the New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment ( Siting Board )
is
empowered to issue Certificates
of
Environmental Compatibility and Public Need authorizing the construction and operation
of
major electric generating facilities
in
New York State, pursuant to Article
1
of
the Public Service Law. The statute and the Siting Board's regulations require a project.cfeveloper to submit its proposed PIP to the staff
of
the Department
of
Public Service ( Department
staff')
for review and comment. The purpose
of
this requirement
is
to ensure that the developer has an adequate plan
in
place to inform affected communities about the project and to facilitate the public's participation
in
the Article
1
process. Cape Vincent Wind submitted its proposed PfP on September
17
 
012. Department staff found that the proposed PIP was inadequate and provided suggestions
as
to how Cape Vincent Wind could Improve its plan. The company submitted a revised PIP on November
16
, 2012. You are correct that providing donations to community groups
is
not an actiVity listed
in
the PfP. Notwithstanding your concerns, the fact that the
PIP
does not
di
scuss charitable donations to local service
