MORGAN — The Public Service Board (PSB) has awarded Seymour Lake Solar’s proposed 500-megawatt solar farm in Morgan a Certificate of Public Good (CPG.)

That will allow the company, owned by energy developer David Blittersdorf, to move forward with installing solar trackers in a hayfield Mr. Blittersdorf owns overlooking Lake Seymour.

“Needless to say, we’re quite disappointed,” said Larry Labor, chair of the Morgan Select Board. “A lot of people went to a great deal of effort opposing this.”

Mr. Blittersdorf applied for the CPG almost a year ago, in September of 2015.   The PSB approved it on August 26.
