Olean Times Herald – $20 million solar farm proposed in West Valley

September 24, 2018 – A $20 million solar facility is being proposed in the town of Ashford that would lead to lower electric bills for 1,500 area residents and small businesses.

West Valley Solar LLC, a division of BQ Energy of Wappingers Falls, is the same company that has already installed two solar farms in Olean and is working on a third.

The fourth solar farm being proposed in Cattaraugus County will conform to the Cattaraugus County Industrial Development Agency’s standard solar energy payment in lieu of taxes (P.I.L.O.T.). The standard solar P.I.L.O.T. is $5,000 per megawatt. Link to article
