KEENE VALLEY — A new 20-panel solar array at Rivermede Farm is the first
step toward year-round farming in the Adirondacks.

It is, in fact, one of the first solar/thermal farm projects installed in
New York, according to Jen Perry, energy coordinator at the Adirondack
North Country Association (ANCA).

Funded in part with a $100,000 Cleaner, Greener Community Grant from New
York State Energy Research and Development Authority, design got underway
in 2013, year one of a four-year sustainability project.
