Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has announced $6,827,000 in USDA Rural Development funding will be awarded to Saratoga Solar, LLC to support renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. This funding will be used to purchase and install a 6.272 MW solar energy system. The system is estimated to produce enough electricity to power 765 homes in the area.

“I am excited to announce another USDA investment in our North Country communities to provide more options for renewable energy,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “This funding returns tax dollars back to our communities and creates economic development while generating renewable energy. I look forward to the positive impact this funding will have on our region and will continue to advocate for programs like these that support rural development and renewable technologies.”
