SARANAC LAKE COMMUNITY SOLAR PROJECT NEARING COMPLETION

In Saranac Lake, a new solar farm will soon come online. Ground was broken back in May, and now, the Saranac Lake Community Solar Project is taking subscriptions and plans to be up and running by early November. It’s on 10 acres along state Route 86 just north of Lake Colby, and it will be the first community solar farm in the Adirondack Park. Residential and commercial customers can subscribe, then use the electricity credits generated by the solar farm as part of their National Grid bill for a 10% savings. There is no subscription fee.
