The Saugerties CAC Climate Smart Task Force conducted its March monthly meeting virtually via the Zoom app.
The meeting included a presentation about the community solar farm built by EastLight Solar at the former Saugerties landfill and how Saugerties residents can save on electricity and lower carbon emissions by participating.
The presenter, Malcom David Bliss, is with Common Energy, the company working on behalf of East Light Solar. He gave an overview of the program, explained the financial and environmental benefits of obtaining renewable energy from the solar farm and explained how Saugerties residents can participate with no cost to sign up and a ten percent discount on their electricity bill.
The CAC Climate Task Force will meet virtually via Zoom on Thursday, April 16. The public can participate by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the ID number.
