Knox solar array to feed community metering project

Jul 22, 2016 12:26 pm
Tim Tulloch in The Altamont Enterprise reports that Monolith Solar is building its first solar farm with community net metering with Helderberg Community Energy in Knox in Albany County. It will look something like this, amid the upstate New York landscape. Russ Pokorny, a founder of Helderberg Community Energy, a community volunteer group, says, “the race is on to be the first” in New York State to offer solar community net metering. Residences (owned or rented), businesses, farms and municipalities share power produced by a large renewable energy source in community net metering, with a two-megawatt solar photovoltaic array to be constructed by Monolith at a location west of the Capital District. The town of Knox is still debating zoning regulations, so the group has hurdles to cross. If they do, then any National Grid customers from southern Albany County (except for Westerlo and Rensselaerville), north to Ticonderoga, and from Gloversville east to Troy, will be eligible to participate.
