INDIAN LAKE — As part of an ongoing effort to control expenses, the Indian Lake Town Board will be hosting a presentation on Municipal Energy Independence at its next regularly scheduled Board Meeting to be held 7 pm, Monday, Dec. 9, at the Indian Lake Town Hall. Residents and interested parties are invited to attend to hear how the community may control future electricity cost through installation of solar electric panels.
The presentation will be led by Ram Shrivastava of Larsen Engineering and is expected to cover economic incentives/loans available through NYSERDA, an overview of Remote Net Metering, examples of community success stories and a opportunity for Questions and Answers.
Councilman Jack Valentine has been investigating the potential use of this technology for Indian Lake for more than a year and believes that with the current tax incentives and new regulations, the time is right to move forward. According to Councilman Valentine, “The cost of energy represents a significant portion of the town’s budget and the Board is interested in pursuing means of reducing and controlling their future costs. New York State is currently offering a number of incentives to invest in renewable energy and especially in the area of solar electric generation.”
