Rensselaerville considering first solar rules

Oct 10, 2019 12:07 am
The Altamont Enterprise reports that Rensselaerville officials are crafting the town’s first-ever solar energy law, and held a public meeting Oct. 1 to hear comments. Questions were raised about whether solar panels will still be allowed on homes (they will), and about rules requiring barbed wire fences around solar farms, low-glare panels, and how much solar power will be enough for Rensselaerville. "We need regulation; however, we cannot overregulate,” said Jason Rauf, the southern Albany County town's deputy supervisor. Rauf said he's “not sure at this point if we will hold another meeting...or if we will simply make some changes and present it to the board. It will be up to the committee in regards to how to proceed.” Read more about this story in the Altamont Enterprise.
