From Trustee Paula Bruscani
After months of conversations, studies, and even an onsite walk through, Renaissance Power and Gas has opted to not bring a solar energy campus to Sloan. The monetary investment required to utilize property along Lovejoy Street as a solar farm was determined to not be cost-effective for them. Despite strong opposition from our Board and numerous WNY other municipalities, NYS has passed legislation that enforces a statewide energy program coupled with restrictions on future natural gas usage. Going forward, the Board will be seeking out ways to turn this into a positive for the Village. My goal is to satisfy our mandate to build renewable energy by seeking grants and investigating ways to produce future revenue for our Village
