Public Service Commission

As the state’s Public Service Commission voted this week to enforce New York getting half its power from renewable energy by 2030, Albany County towns with rural land conducive to solar farms are in varying stages of developing zoning ordinances for solar: Bethlehem, Guilderland, and Knox have 2016 laws in place.

The Knox group Helderberg Community Energy is hoping to take advantage of community net metering in order to supply solar-generated power to homes in Knox and Berne.

The Public Service Commission asked companies for proposals to bring more power from upstate New York south to New York City. New lines may impact local aesthetics but could also increase tax revenue.
