Town of Potsdam to hold solar code public hearing Aug. 28
Monday, August 19, 2019 - 1:17 pm

POTSDAM -- The Town of Potsdam has once again set a time and date for a public hearing on its new proposed solar installations code.

The hearing on “Regulation of Solar Photovoltaic (PV) System” is now set for 2 p.m. Aug. 28 at Town Hall.

And a special meeting will be held immediately following the hearing, presumably to hold a vote on whether or not to accept the new local law, and possibly other matters.

The town is revising the section of the code that applies to solar installations. The boards in Potsdam, Canton and others around the state have been working to revise their codes to accommodate the increasing demand for larger solar arrays, which were not sufficiently addressed in most earlier municipal codes.

A July hearing was postponed in order to devise revisions in light of recommendations from the St. Lawrence County Planning Board
