— The project would be comparable to the Owens Corning array. About 10 acres of the site’s available 80 acres would be utilized for the project. The town would then have the opportunity to expand the site in the future.

Deyoe said the savings for the town depends on a number of variables, but could be about $100,000 to $175,000 a year.

“I think it’s an exciting opportunity for the town,” said Reinhardt. “It’s great to see Bethlehem turning into a truly sustainable community.”

The project would rely solely on the town receiving a bid approval from NYSERDA for the grant. The town would then need to enter into a power purchase agreement with Borrego Solar.
