What we know:

 

1.

Village of Coxsackie project on Stacey road is intended to reduce Village energy costs by 15%.  See the IDA report.

 

2.

The Village of Coxsackie documents a letter (August 2018) rec’d from Hecate concerning development on the American Valve location: The Letter states that if the Village proceeds with a solar project, Hecate would at not cost build solar array, and provide the electric back to the residents at no cost to the Village. The scale remains unclear, as does the financing; Hecate has stated that costs would be subtracted from their proposed PILOT funds. We don’t consider this “free solar energy for the town.”
