On February 8, 2019, Galloo Island LLC withdrew its Article 10 Application for the 102.3 megawatt “Galloo Island Wind Farm”. Additional information about this proceeding, and the circumstances of the Applicant’s withdrawal, are available on the DMM website for Galloo Island.
The withdrawal comes after repeated delays in the Article 10 proceeding and after intervenor parties raised concerns over the developer’s “character” as an applicant. The Presiding Examiners noted, “[m]ore importantly, the question of Galloo’s compliance with [Code of Conduct] obligations is relevant to Galloo’s character and fitness, an issue open for the parties to raise and the examiners and Siting Board to review in an Article 10 proceeding.” Case 15-F-0327, Second ruling on Discovery Objections, p. 6 (available here).
Any party to an Article 10 proceeding, whether for or against a specific project, should review the Galloo Island docket.
