While Steel Winds, located on the former grounds of Bethlehem Steel in Lackawanna, may be the best known wind energy project in Western New York, a trip about 50 minutes south-east of Buffalo brings you to one of the largest. Located in Eagle, New York, the 67 turbines that comprise the Bliss Wind Farm are located on a naturally hilly ridge in Wyoming County. While being located on private properties means one cannot lawfully approach the windmills, the surrounding roads (especially NYS Route 77 and North Sheldon Road) offer great vantage points.
