Article 10 update

We’re now in the “Stipulations” part of the Article 10 process for Hecate’s Greene Co. Solar Facility. This is when state agencies and groups like Saving Greene identify issues for Hecate to address when they file their Article 10 Application.

Saving Greene members and the group’s attorney reviewed project stipulations before submitting written comments and attending a meeting on the subject. These are some of the topics we brought up:
1 - Determining requirements for property value studies
2 - Evaluating the cumulative effects of multiple solar facilities on the town
3 - Limiting the impact to rare grassland habitat for the state-endangered short-eared owl and other listed species
4 - Reducing agricultural and stormwater runoff into Sleepy Hollow Lake
5 - Clarifying plans for decommissioning

The next phase in the Article 10 process begins when Hecate Greene files their Application.
