Fresh on the heels of signing a contract to build a 2.7 megawatt municipal solar project in Lewis County in north central New York state, Greenskies Renewable Energy has been contracted to build a 2.7 megawatt solar array in Erie County, in the western end of the state.

The ground-mounted system will be built on a vacant tract of land in Alden, owned by Erie County. The site is adjacent to the Alden Correctional Facility. The solar array will consist of 8,500 solar photovoltaic panels.
