What we know:

 
  1. Saving Greene’s position

Saving Greene opposes the siting of any plant under Article 10 of the Public Service Law, which deprives local governments of home rule rights guaranteed by the New York State Constitution (Article IX, Section 1). The scale and industrial footprint of the Flint Mine Solar project represent a significant change in land use that affects the character and landscape of Coxsackie. These concerns must be addressed at the local level.
