In a couple of spots not far from our borders, fields of solar panels have appeared within the past year. Now it seems someone has had the idea of creating a field of solar panels within the city limits of Hudson, on the capped landfill at the north end of Second Street, adjacent to North Bay.
John Mason reports today in the Register-Star about a proposal to rent land on the former county dump to create a "community solar" array: "Solar for landfill gets cold shoulder." The proposal, which was presented by a representative of Monolith Solar at the invitation of Stuyvesant supervisor Ron Knott, who chairs the county Public Works Committee, was not enthusiastically received by Hudson supervisors Don Moore (Third Ward) and Sarah Sterling (First Ward) or by Peter Paden of the Columbia Land Conservancy.
