ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Work has wrapped up on a new state-supported solar energy project in the Hudson Valley.
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority announced the solar power installation on Wednesday.
The 214-kilowatt project is located on a 1-acre parcel of land in the town of Clermont in Columbia County, east of the Hudson River and north of Red Hook.
The solar facility is an example of modest-scale community solar power and will generate enough electricity to power about 40 customers. It was developed by Hudson Solar.
