County approves money for solar project

by Carol Thompson

The Oswego County Legislature accepted $835 in additional funding for the Bunner Street complex solar energy project, bringing the total cost to $106,820.

During Thursday’s meeting, a resolution to approve the additional funds was approved with little discussion.

Legislator Doug Malone questioned if the project had gone out to bid.

Legislature Chairman Fred Beardsley said the answer was unknown. “We don’t recall,” he said.

The solar energy system project was originally approved May 2010. It was a set up to install a 19.3 kW solar generation system and later increased to a 28kW syem.

Part of the project required access to the ceiling area of the complex and asbestos testing was required before the work could proceed, according to the resolution.
