Town of Huntington Climate Action Plan

New York
Town Of Huntington   
| Suburban |
In 2015, the Town of Huntington, New York released its Climate Action Plan. The Plan calls for removing zoning hurdles that obstruct the development of solar energy systems on private property and to streamline the permitting process. It calls for the installation of solar PV capacity on every public facility that can reasonably support such systems. The Plan also notes that to achieve economies of scale, the Town should bid multiple installations together or use requirements contracts to promote cost efficiencies. The plan also directs the Town to provide incentives, such as property tax abatements, to be provided to those installing solar energy systems.
