MISF is a local renewable energy project for our community. The lead developer, based in Long Island, has owned the 100-acre plot of land for 25 years. Working with a Long Island based team of engineers and environmental consultants with decades of combined experience on some of the area’s most important energy projects, the MISF team has proposed an optimal use for this property – a forward-thinking, game-changing solar farm that will help local residents live healthier lives, improve air quality, reduce dependence on fossil fuels, cut carbon emissions and provide reliable, affordable electricity for Long Island.
The land is Zoned L1 industrial. As of right, this property could host a massive storage facility or light manufacturing. However, it is our belief that the Town of Brookhaven would be better served with a sustainable, renewable energy project that actually improves the entire community for this generation and many generations to come.
The proposed photovoltaic (PV) solar energy farm project consists of 67,000 panels, capable of generating approximately 19.2 MW of renewable electricity for distribution onto the PSEG Long Island power grid.
The project will help meet Long Island’s growing energy needs while reducing fossil fuel usage; improving public health; creating jobs; and enhancing energy affordability in the region.
