Built on open land behind the former Shepard Farm resort that peaked in popularity in the mid-1900s and closed more than a quarter century ago, Westerlo (West) is part of a new community solar farm that brings electricity savings to Central Hudson Gas & Electric customers in the area. The Westerlo solar project is made up of two equal sections – East and West – each including just over 18,000 solar panels and generating 7 MW of clean power. The construction and long-term operation of these solar farms provide a variety of employment opportunities that enhance the local economy.
