The Project is a solar energy generation facility targeted at meeting a significant portion (+/- 80%) of the Village of Coxsackie’s electrical energy needs.  The Village owns multiple municipal facilities to include a water treatment and waste water treatment facility which are significant electrical users. The project involves the development of a +/- 782 kW DC solar array with associated invertors/controls and interconnection to the electrical grid. The project will be located on a 4.9 acre parcel owned by the IDA located at the intersection of Sunset Blvd and Stacy Road in the Town of Coxsackie.  The project will be built and operated by Village of Coxsackie Municipal Solar Project One, LLC (VCMSPO) which is a private solar developer with the power generated from the facility sold to the Village of Coxsackie under a 20 year Power Purchase Agreement. The IDA will provide the land for installation of the system under a ground lease and will provide developer incentives in the form of a Sales & Use Tax Exemption and a PILOT.
