A proposal for a wind energy farm off the shores of Lakes Erie and Ontario has been nixed.

The New York Power Authority pulled the plug on the project Tuesday, saying the costs of the subsidies needed to make the wind farm work were too high.

Several developers had submitted proposals last year to build the offshore wind farm, which would have placed 150 to 175 wind turbines in our area.
