Ellicottville schools staying in conversation concerning potential solar fields

ELLICOTTVILLE — During the Ellicottville Central School Board of Education meeting held Oct. 29, Superintendent Robert Miller updated the board on the potential of solar fields coming into Great Valley with a possible location near the school.

Miller said he recently attended both Ellicottville and Great Valley town board meetings, noting that both townships have or are in the process of approving laws that prohibit some types of solar fields but may allow others.

“One of the things that’s really of concern is the taxes,” he said. “The companies have said if they come in we can’t do it at fully assessed value or else it’s not profitable then.”
