Public Notice: Residents of Town of Riverhead — Riverhead Solar 2, LLC will host TWO public informational meetings March 14 (1to 3 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m.)

Event Date: 
Wed, 03/14/2018 - 1:00pm - 3:00pm


Riverhead Solar 2, LLC will host a public informational meeting March 14, 2018 at Residence Inn Long Island East End, 2012 Old Country Road, Riverhead, NY 11901, regarding its proposed development of a 36 megawatt (MW) photovoltaic solar electric generating in the Town of Riverhead.  Two sessions will be held: the first from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM, and the second from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM, with each meeting having the same presentation content. Interested members of the public may attend either, or both, meetings as is convenient for their schedules.

On October 20, 2017, Riverhead Solar 2 filed a Public Involvement Program Plan (PIP) with the New York State Board on Electric Generation Siting and the Environment (Siting Board). The PIP, filed pursuant to Article 10 of the New York State Public Service Law and associated regulations (16 NYCRR Part 1000), is the first step in the process to obtain the requisite approvals from the Siting Board to construct the Project. In the PIP, Riverhead Solar 2 committed to, among other outreach activities, holding four open-house style meetings, the first two of which are being held in advance of the company’s submission of a Preliminary Scoping Statement (PSS) outlining the scope and methodology of studies to be performed in connection with the project, and the information which will be included in the Project’s Application.  The purpose of the meeting is to educate interested parties, receive public comment and answer questions about the Project.  Two additional sessions will be held at a later date, following submission of the PSS and prior to Riverhead Solar 2’s submission of an Application.
