VESTAL, NY (WSKG) — In August, Steuben County officials approved a 25-year lease with the Toronto-based company Abundant Solar. Under the agreement the company will install solar panels at the landfill in Bath.
This site is just one of six being considered. The other sites include a second location at the landfill in Bath, and two closed landfills in Lindley and Prattsburgh, also in Steuben County.
Rachel Clar is with Abundant Solar. She said the chances are high that they’ll develop on the other sites.
“I would say certain,” she said. “We want to lease all those sites.”
Clar added that the company is in conversations with the county. Once those leases are in place the company will work with towns on permitting.
