Delaware River Solar got another big thumbs up in the Town of Delaware, with a decision by the town board not to extend a moratorium on solar arrays in the township.

As reported in the Sullivan County Democrat, Planning Board member, Dave Peters said, "We [the planning board] want them [Delaware River Solar] to have their two solar arrays up and running before any more are approved. Believe me, Rich Winters did an excellent job with Baer Rd.'"

Delaware River Solar Wants to Help You Help A Charity in Need

Community solar. Notice the first word in that phrase? At Delaware River Solar, we believe in community. 

Our solar farms are bringing greener, cleaner energy to the communities where they're located. But for us, that's not enough. We want to give back more to the communities that have welcomed us with open arms. 

In 2017, that commitment to community translated to more than $3,000 in donations to local charities. In 2018, we are challenging our local businesses and charitable organizations to help us help more of our community!

Do you have an upcoming event on your calendar? A staff meeting? A fundraiser? Invite Delaware River Solar to take part! 

We'll set up a table where we explain the benefits of community solar, and for every verified sign up to one of our solar projects, we will donate $50 to a charity of your choice!

Contact us now to get the ball rolling! Email Cindy Menges to see if your event qualifies. 

Narrowsburg Solar Field Gets Green Light

There's another Delaware River Solar solar array headed to Sullivan County! The Town of Tusten Planning Board unanimously approved a solar farm on Woodoak Road in Narrowsburg. 

As noted in The River Reporter, "The land on which the solar field will be located is owned by Ned Lang under the business name of Homeland Farms LLC. The land is leased for 30 years to DRS, which will be responsible for the build-out, landscaping and maintenance and will provide funds over the life of the lease to the Town to cover the costs of decommissioning the site."
