Conn. Siting Council approves Candlewood Mountain solar farm

Amaresco has gained approval from the Connecticut Siting Council for their proposed 60,000-panel solar farm on Candlewood Mountain.  The company plans to donate 100 acres to a land conservancy.  New Milford has 45 days to decide whether to file an appeal. 

 

Earlier this year, the Town Council approved a Payment in Lieu of Taxes agreement for $2.7 million to be paid to the town over 20 years if Amaresco was approved to build a solar farm on Candlewood Mountain. 

 

When he was a town councilman Pete Bass supported the PILOT agreement, but then opposed the project.  Bass is worried about the project and how it will impact the environment.
