ConnectGen is proposing a 270 megawatt solar project in South Ripley, New York over an area of approximately 2000 acres. The western edge of the project abuts North East Township just about centered where Kerr road crosses the state line.
The proposed facility will be an array of photovoltaic panels along with 20 MW (80MWh) of battery energy storage capacity.
The Facility will interconnect to the New York power grid via a new point of interconnection (POI) connecting to the existing National Grid 230 kilovolt (“kV”) Ripley to Dunkirk transmission line and existing 230kV Ripley Substation in the Town of Ripley in Chautauqua County
The developer is holding an open house from 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM and 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at Meeder’s Restaurant, 19 E Main Street, Ripley, NY. Representatives of the company will be in attendance.
