Update on the Proposed Community Solar Project

For immediate release

Dear BCSD Community,

In 2020 Brightcore Energy, LLC approached Bedford Central School District with a proposal to construct and operate solar panel arrays at West Patent Elementary School and Mount Kisco Elementary School as part of a community solar program offered through ConEdison. The district worked diligently to learn more about what this project would entail. After careful consideration, the district has determined not to proceed with this proposed project and will not advance its review or consideration of the project any further.

We would like to thank Brightcore and its representatives, as well as our community members, for their time and attention to matters concerning this proposal. We look forward to focusing our efforts on the district’s other ongoing sustainability and energy efficiency initiatives, such as the proposed Energy Performance Contract and development of a district-wide strategic sustainability plan. Those plans will be shared with the community as they develop.

Sincerely,

Bedford Central School District Board of Education
