ConnectGen has submitted a PILOT application to the Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency (CCIDA) for its South Ripley Solar Project. The Project is expected to contribute over 18 million dollars in increased revenue to local taxing jurisdictions, including the Town of Ripley, Chautauqua County, the Sherman Central School District, and the Ripley Central School District through its 30-year life.
“This is a project that ConnectGen and the community have been working on for a couple of years,” said Mark Geise, Deputy County Executive for Economic Development/Chief Executive Officer of the County of Chautauqua Industrial Development Agency. “I’m glad that the CCIDA can assist them in hopefully making it a reality.”
Chautauqua County Executive PJ Wendel said, “This project is a win-win for Chautauqua County and the State of New York. We are thrilled that we have the land and infrastructure to attract this clean energy project to our area.”
