AN ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY FOR ONEIDA COUNTY
Alder Creek Solar offers a new source of economic development, including long-term local and state tax revenue for schools, government services, and public infrastructure. The power from Alder Creek Solar will be delivered into the local New York electrical grid, helping to diversify New York’s energy portfolio. Solar power is one of the most cost-effective sources of electricity available today, and its ability to generate power at peak times helps reduce electricity costs for all consumers.
In addition to the jobs directly and indirectly created during construction and operation of Alder Creek Solar, this project also creates opportunities for companies with renewable energy goals to expand into Oneida County and open new locations adjacent to renewable power.
