Vic Furman questions what’s going with the Broome County Solar Farm that was supposed to save taxpayer so much money but still isn’t producing electricity.
I have been long involved in the rights of landowners and fighting for their ability to harvest the mineral rights from their farms and land holdings. I’m a landowner and a Field Director for the Joint Landowners Coalition of New York (JLCNY), this job involving gas well tours, visiting homes where drilling took place, investigating when possible all activities pro and con, causes and effects at drilling sites and educating the public at any available venue. I am also President of The Sapbush Road Group, a landowner group formed in 2008 to evaluate and negotiate gas leases.
One of the activities I have been following and investigating recently is the status of the Broome County Solar Farm project that was supposed to create big savings for taxpayers. So far, it’s been a boondoggle, not unlike SolarCity, with the whom the deal was made.
