Solar Array Installation Moving Forward on the Roof at Town Hall

Town Seal

Farmingville, NY - Recently, Supervisor Ed Romaine and members of the Town Council were on the roof of Brookhaven Town Hall to assess the progress of the solar array installation project. Upon completion, the Town Hall rooftop will include more than 2,500 solar panels and generate 960 KWDC of power, enough to provide electricity to over 100 homes for 24 hours a day, each year. It will be managed by Agilitas Energy, LLC, a solar developer that has a Power Purchase Agreement with PSEG Long Island and a an $18,225 yearly lease agreement the Town. Agilitas will also pay $581,242 toward the cost of the new roof at Town Hall as additional solar projects become operational.

In May of 2014, the Town was awarded a Feed-In Tariff from PSEG Long Island for solar arrays at Brookhaven Calabro Airport, Manorville Compost Facility and Holtsville Ecology Site. The Manorville, Holtsville and Town Hall parking lot solar arrays are currently generating electricity. Since then, more sites have been added, including the Brookhaven Amphitheater parking lot and Brookhaven Town Hall roof. Additional solar and alternative energy projects are being considered for future development at other Town-owned properties. The Town of Brookhaven solar array sites were selected after a review was conducted by PSEG Long Island, on behalf of LIPA to determine the likelihood of a successful project. These projects are part of Supervisor Romaine’s “Green Initiative” and PSEG’s multi-phase Clean Solar Initiative program designed to produce clean, renewable power for Long Island.
