First of all, a proposal for a 6.9 megawatt solar farm in the town’s west end. It was formally presented to the Planning Board at its most recent session.

The project, by Borrego Solar, calls for 18,495 panels to be built. Located on a 21.5-acre parcel at 267 Sugar Hill Road in the Clifton Park’s Rexford section. Built on land that was previously an apple orchard. Plans call for the array to be surrounded by a seven-foot fence.


In conclusion and according to proposal submitted to the town planning department by Borrego, construction of the array will take approximately six months. Consequently, the array will be placed on land that was previously an apple orchard. Therefore a number of trees will remain around the array. So Clifton Park Planning Director John Scavo said that Borrego will return to a future meeting with renderings. Therefore to better show integration of the array with surrounding trees. The planning board has 60 days to act on the proposal..
