SCHUYLERVILLE — An informational meeting will be held Wednesday for residents to learn about a community solar farm.
Project developer Nexamp will give a presentation about the farm, which is on Brick Church Road in Brunswick.
The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. at Schuylerville Village Hall at 35 Spring St. There will be refreshments and a question-and-answer period will follow the presentation.
Residents will have the opportunity to subscribe to the solar program, which will allow them to save money on their electric bills and support renewable energy. This is an option for residents who are not able to purchase solar panels on their property.
The program is open to any New York resident who gets their electricity through National Grid, according to a Nexamp news release.
Customers can save about 10 percent on their regular utility bill through the program.
Schuylerville Mayor Dan Carpenter said he is excited to partner with Nexamp.
“As part of our Climate Smart Community pledge, village elected officials are committed to educating residents on ways to promote and access renewable energy sources,” he said in a news release. “The village has already reached an agreement with Nexamp to reduce our energy footprint and to reduce some of our energy costs by 10 percent.”
