A Developer wants to clear-cut the mountain to build a solar plant

Did you know?

The proposed Project Area consists of approximately 89.4 acres of land including the facility, 75,000 solar PV panels and eight (8) inverters solar panels, electric interconnection route and access road.

The project will require the clear cutting of approximately 70 acres of core forest. It will also utilize 14+ acres of farmland.
Candlewood

Solar negotiated with the Mayor and Town Council for a tax abatement, without which, they could not afford to do this project. Plus the town has given up any right to Audits, Inspection of Records or Request for Declarations. In other words, for the next 20 years New Milford taxpayers will be subsidizing this utility so they can realize profits for their investors.

How you can help:

1. Sign our petition by entering your information on the right-hand side of this page.

2. Sign up for our e-newsletter and informational mailings.

3. Attend the Siting Council hearing on September 26.

a. Download the petition, print and share.

b. Download the Flyer and distribute.

5. Like, share and post to our Facebook page, RESCUE Candlewood Mountain.

6. Put a lawn sign in your yard. A homemade sign is worth a thousand words!

7. Write or email Mayor David Gronbach and the Town Council to let them know you are against this project. Tell them to represent you at the Siting Council.

8. Write a letter to the editor:

    Any large project like this needs to be considered by our town government every step of the way. We need to be involved. It's more than the 75 acres being affected. It's every parcel around it and below it as well.

    please do not approve this project. Candlewood Lake is New Milford's jewel and this solar field
    placement will allow runoff of dangerous chemicals into the lake.
