Information about the Project 

Update - November 2019

Due to changes in New York's building code requirements, GlidePath has updated the project design to house the batteries inside a group of non-occupiable steel containers, rather than in a single building.

The container design will make the project less visible from the road. Other than the appearance of the structure, there is no change to the project’s location, overall footprint, electrical capacity, technology, or construction timeline. GlidePath re-studied the sound level impact and confirmed the anticipated sound levels at the nearest property line to be 43.8 dB(A), well below the recommended limit of 60dB(A).


On October 8, 2019 GlidePath presented the containerized design to the Town of Ulster Planning board which approved the new design and recommended re-affirmation the original SEQRA Negative Declaration.  Ulster’s Town Board approved and reaffirmed the Negative Declaration on October 17, 2019.
