Negative Declaration

Allegany County - The Allegany County Industrial Development Agency (ACIDA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Hume - Wiscoy Solar I and Hume - Wiscoy Solar II Solar Projects will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal for two solar projects on one property in the Town of Hume, which will be subject to subdivision. The area around the proposed projects consists of a mix of agricultural, rural residential, scrub-shrub, and forested areas. A large forested tract lies southeast of the limits of the proposed Project. An abandoned rural residential home and shed lie to the northeast, surrounded by large mature trees. The area is bounded to the west and north by rural residential properties and agricultural fields, but larger woodlots lie within about one quarter mile in both of those directions. The project site is an operating hay farm. The ACIDA has reviewed the proposed projects together to ensure that all prospective cumulative impacts are included. Each of the projects considers the acquisition of an interest in land, the construction of an approximately 5 MW AC solar energy generating facility, including panels, racking, inverters, electrical cables, grid interconnection, site preparation, access roads and any other required improvements, and the acquisition and installation therein and thereon of related fixtures, machinery, equipment and other personal property, all of the foregoing to constitute a solar energy generating facility to be owned and operated by the respective limited liability companies. The project is located on Mills Mills Road in the Town of Hume.
