The Project will also require the construction of internal infrastructure, such as a substation, transformers, an operations and maintenance building, approximately 30 miles of access roads, a temporary construction laydown area of approximately eight acres, and about 27 miles of fencing.
Mohawk Solar LLC
On June 5, 2019, Mohawk Solar, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Avangrid Renewables, LLC, (Mohawk) filed an application seeking authority to construct and operate a 90.5-megawatt (MW) photovoltaic (PV) solar electric generating facility (the Project) in the Towns of Canajoharie and Minden, Montgomery County.
The Project would consist of up to 529 acres of solar PV generating panels connected by underground collection lines that will generate electricity supplied to the bulk electric transmission system owned by Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation, doing business as National Grid. The Project would interconnect with the existing St. Johnsville-Marshville 115-kV transmission line.
The Long Island Solar Farm (LISF) is a 32-MW solar photovoltaic power plant built through a collaboration between BP Solar, the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), and the Department of Energy. The LISF, located on the Brookhaven National Laboratory site, began delivering power to the LIPA grid in November 2011, and is the largest solar photovoltaic power plant in the New York State. It generates enough renewable energy to power approximately 4,500 homes, and is helping New York State meet its clean energy and carbon reduction goals.
