“The Glen Town Board affirmed their support for measures in a proposed local law
tightening regulations over utility-scale solar projects and made only minor changes to the draft law during a special meeting on Thursday.
The meeting was called to review comments received during the public hearing on the law on
July 11. That included a detailed letter submitted by Young/Sommer LLC, the attorneys for solar. developer ConnectGen.
The reason for this meeting is so we can discuss these prior to taking any action on the solar
law. So that the board would come together, look things over, see if there is anything we wanted to include, change or update,” Supervisor Timothy Reilly said Thursday.
Although town officials felt it necessary to document their consideration of each point raised by ConnectGen’s lawyers, Councilwoman Susan Whiteman stated plainly that the proposed solar
laws are not directed specifically at the company or the massive projects it is planning in Glen.”
