A joint solar farm project the city and Solar City, a private company, have planned for city-owned property on Upper Sherman Avenue in Queensbury is eligible for additional New York State Energy Research and Development Authority subsidy to add another row of solar units, announced Edward Bartholomew, president of EDC Warren County. Glens Falls is being offered the additional assistance, because another municipality could not complete its proposed project in the required time frame, he said. Installation of the Glens Falls project will begin once the Queensbury Planning Board review process is completed.
