Tonawanda, New York Streamlines Solar Project Rules
Tuesday, July 13th 2010 3:22 AM
By GetSolar Staff.
Tonawanda, a town in western New York, hopes to attract solar development with the help of a new law.

The Tonawanda News reports this week that the town's board has approved a measure to streamline solar-power projects and set up safeguards that protect Tonawanda's finances. The board gave the green light to a rule that requires solar developers to pay $50,000 into a surety fund, in the event they back out of a project and force the town government to disassemble the solar equipment they leave behind.

Even though the surety requirement imposes a burden on solar project companies, the predictability that the new rules provide is welcome. Daniel Montante, the director of TM Montante Development's solar-projects division, hailed the rule and said Tonawanda is "setting an excellent example in New York State and beyond New York State."

TM Montante, in fact, is largely responsible for the town's role as a would-be solar investment hub. The development firm built a solar research park in Tonawanda - and it no doubt hopes that the streamlined rules will lure solar companies to the area.ADNFCR-3324-ID-19888433-ADNFCR
