On September 19, 2019 the Duanesburg Planning Board approved Eden Renewables Oak Hill Solar 1 and 2, LLC’s Special Use Permit and Site Plan. Application documents (Site Plan, Resolution and SEQR Negative Declaration) do not reflect battery energy storage system (BESS).The original documents presented to the town and residents at the July and August 2019 Public Hearings were for two 5 MW AC solar arrays. At that time the developer omitted the nearest residence, did not supply a glare study and did not file a Notice of Intent with the DEC. The Project was not published in the Environmental Notice Bulletin until June 2020.
The July 2021 request for an Amendment to include Battery Energy Storage may be unsafe for our first responders, may contaminate the underlying principal aquifer, and it may create additional hazardous waste disposal issues for the town.
The addition of batteries does not benefit our town and may increase tax payer liability.
Please submit your comments to the town supervisor and planning board today: jhowe@duanesburg.net
Thank you first responders to explosion and fire at proposed site of Eden Renewables Oak Hill Solar, 13590 Duanesburg Road, Sunday March 8 at 6:30 am.
