Mill Point Solar Project

ConnectGen is developing a large-scale solar project in central Montgomery County south of the Mohawk River. ConnectGen expects to install up to 250 megawatts (MW) of solar in the area, which has the potential to power over 65,000 homes in New York State.

Why Montgomery County, New York?

ConnectGen identified the area within the Town of Glen as suitable for solar development because of its proximity to the existing transmission system with available capacity, site suitability with existing land use, minimal anticipated environmental impacts, and Montgomery County’s history of renewable energy and economic development.

Mill Point Solar Project Area

ConnectGen expects to use approximately 2,000 acres, wholly located within the Town of Glen, in Montgomery County for the Mill Point Solar Project, depending on engineering and environmental considerations.

The Mill Point Solar Project will provide benefits to Montgomery County and local communities through:

Community Payments

Millions of dollars in increased revenue to the Town of Glen, Montgomery County, and the Fonda-Fultonville Central School District

Local Jobs

Hundreds of local construction jobs and revenue to local businesses

Community Involvement

Support of local community organizations through donations and sponsorships

Opportunity
ConnectGen is in the process of developing several large-scale hybrid solar and storage projects in New York while continuing to assess new opportunities across the state.

In March of 2020, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) announced a 20-year contract award for ConnectGen’s South Ripley Solar and Storage Project in Chautauqua County, New York. The South Ripley Solar and Storage Project was one of 21 large-scale solar, wind, and energy storage projects across upstate New York, totaling 1,278 MW of renewable capacity, to receive a contract award.
