Jun 24, 2022 1:00 pm

Andrea Macko reports for Porcupine Soup that there is another proposal a commercial solar farm in Greene County, this one in the town of Greenville, this time on the Freehold Flats. Stella Solar, LLC of Denver, CO, under the name East Durham Solar, LLC, on May 25 asked for a special use permit and site plan approval application to the Town of Greenville Planning Board for a solar farm at 9139 State Route 32. The company wants to generate 493.8 kilowatts on about six acres of a 40-acre parcel on the west side of State Route 32 along the Catskill Creek. “The PV panels proposed for this project are single-axis tracking. Panels containing cadmium telluride will not be used for this project. The racking system, generally composed of aluminum, will be pile driven into the ground surface. The solar panels will be directly interconnected to and provide energy to the local electric distribution grid via an overhead electrical service. Prior to utility interconnection, direct current (DC) electrical power generated by the solar panels will be transformed to AC power and modified as necessary to connect to the local electrical power supply. The project will also include an equipment pad, a gravel access road, a vegetative soil cover, and it will be surrounded by an [eight-foot] agricultural security fence with wood posts,” the application states. The Greenville Planning Board meets the first Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. Read more about this story at Porcupine Soup.
