Catskill considers use of solar energy

Dec 07, 2013 12:05 am
William J. Kemble writes in the Daily Freeman the Catskill Town Board is considering the installation of solar panels as a way to reduce the town’s $80,000 per year electricity costs. Consultant Gordon Cochrane told the board at a meeting this week the town’s electric bill would fall by $16,000 per year if it uses solar energy. Cochrane said the system would cost $1.2 million, but a grant from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority would lower the amount to $800,000. Town Board members said they want to review solar energy projects in other communities before proceeding. Read the full story in the Daily Freeman.
