Reading, New York’s 2017 Comprehensive Plan promotes the use of solar energy throughout the community. It calls for Reading to provide information about the feasibility of solar energy to residents and to collaborate with state and other organizations in programs that encourage growth in solar energy systems. The plan also calls for Reading to reform its land use regulations to specifically allow certain types of solar energy systems and to establish procedures for review and approval of both small-scale accessory systems and large-scale installations. Reading’s plan also calls for the operator of large-scale solar installations to provide a decommissioning plan to ensure that the land such installations are located on is put back to agricultural use when the life of said systems end.
