Bid on Southold animal shelter solar project accepted

On Tuesday, Town Board members accepted a bid from SUNation Solar Systems for construction of a solar array at the town animal shelter to provide shade for dogs and generate power.

The project will cost $574,752, according to the bid, but the town is slated to receive a $100,000 New York State Energy Research & Development grant, about $26,000 in rebates and a $160,000 private donation that will offset that amount. 

The final cost to the town will be approximately $278,667. The array will be a 173.9 killowatt DC system, according to town engineer Michael Collins.
