A new Mayor means a new position on the proposed Candlewood Mountain solar farm in New Milford. The Newstimes reports that the town's official stance now is to oppose the project. The Connecticut Siting Council is currently considering the application to generate 20 megawatts of energy. Briefs were filed by Mayor Pete Bass, who said a majority of Town Council members oppose the plan, and Ameresco--the company planning to install the 60-thousand solar panels. Environmental concerns are among the biggest, but the state Department of Agriculture has also weighed in on the project. The site is currently zoned for multifamily residence.
