NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) — Niagara Falls State Park is going even more green. This time, by looking to the sky.
A new solar energy project has been completed to provide carbon-free power. The solar project will provide energy to the park’s maintenance building.
A second phase of the project calls for electrical storage batteries, so that the facility can go off-grid during blackouts or emergencies.
Niagara Falls is also home to the hydroelectric dam, which is the biggest electricity producer in the state.
