NCCC: First of two events on Bear Ridge Project held Wednesday.
SANBORN — Cypress Creek Renewables met with area residents on Wednesday to explain what their planned solar energy project will entail and answer questions.
An open house forum was held on Wednesday at Niagara County Community College to discuss the Bear Ridge Project, which would be based in the Cambria and Pendleton area and provide electricity for about 25,000 homes. It’s projected to generate about 100 megawatts of energy.
The project would involve the company leasing 900 acres of private land throughout a project area that consists of 5,000 acres, primarily in southern Cambria and a portion in northern Pendleton.
