THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
A large-scale solar farm under consideration for St. Lawrence County on land in the towns of Massena, Norfolk and Brasher would provide hundreds of temporary construction jobs and three to four permanent jobs. North Park Energyplans to develop, construct and operate a solar energy center to have a maximum generating capability of 180 megawatts MW. on approximately 1,600 acres between the three towns. Based on similar projects experience, the project would create about 275-375 temporary construction jobs at its peak during the approximate 8 months of building, and three to four permanent jobs.
