Hudson Solar installs system at the Dutchess County Poultry Farm
Hudson Solar will install a solar-energy system at Northwind Farms, a Dutchess County, New York, poultry farm.
Northwind Farms made a cash purchase for the unit, taking advantage of New York state rebates as well as federal and U.S. Department of Agriculture grants, which offered a 25-year savings on the system.
The land preservation group Scenic Hudson partnered with Northwind Farms, the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Dutchess Land Conservancy, and the town of Red Hook to purchase a conservation easement on the property that directly contributed to the solar installation on the farm.
Hudson Solar has offices in Rhinebeck in Dutchess County and in Albany.
