Shepard Farm (John Dolce and Steve Haaland) - represents 10% of the size of Hecate 1,2,3 in Coxsackie
Shepard Farm intends to lease the land to the solar company Borrego, which will operate the panels. The power is expected to go to Central Hudson Gas & Electric. A total of 17,496 panels for the two planned arrays will be used, with a 6,998-kilowatt array located on one parcel of land, and a 2,998-kilowatt array located on another; the land will be surrounded by a six-foot-tall fence with barbed wire. There will also be two areas for transformers, and data acquisition gear to monitor them. The southeast corner of the property was determined to be the only spot where the arrays will be visible.
The subdivision of the 190-acre property is necessary for operating the two planned arrays, as Westerlo’s solar law allows an array to cover only up to 20 acres on a parcel of land.
