Coxsackie prison, four others, get solar panels

Apr 25, 2023 12:43 pm

Andrea Macko reports in Porcupine Soup that last week Gov. Kathy Hochul announced that solar projects at Wende, Mid-State, Greene, Eastern, and Green Haven state correctional facilities may save the state more than $10 million in energy costs over their lifetimes. In Coxsackie, a 17,820-module ground array system has already been installed at the Greene Correctional Facility. Hochul said, "By installing more than 75,000 solar panels at DOCCS facilities, New York continues to lead by example, paving the way for a brighter, greener future for all.” Hochul’s office claims the projects will reduce carbon emissions by nearly 4,500 tons, the equivalent of removing 880 cars from state roads.
