Riverhead Town is considering a 12-month moratorium on new commercial solar energy production facilities. The moratorium would not affect the two applications for major solar production facilities currently pending for some 488 acres of land in Calverton.
During a special meeting marred by confusion and much contention, the town board decided to table a resolution that would end environmental review of a new 22.9-megawatt solar farm in Calverton.
The new solar farm would be the fifth commercial solar generating facility in the hamlet of Calverton.
