ALDER CREEK — Apex Clean Energy and Alder Creek Solar have annouced that three organizations have been awarded grants as part of the Alder Creek Solar Community Grant Program.

The 2022 grant program invited local organizations to apply for funds supporting four types of activities: building healthy communities, promoting education, encouraging economic development and sustaining the environment.

The recipients of this year’s grants are Camp Woodlot, Woodgate Free Library and the Dodge-Pratt-Northam (DPN) Art and Community Center.

“I can’t thank Alder Creek Solar enough for the support they are providing to Woodlot, and to all the clients who will be using the new lean-to that they helped fund,” said Julie Rubenstein, volunteer with Camp Woodlot. “When complete, this lean-to will serve as the centerpiece for a full outdoor and camping experience that makes the natural beauty of our region more accessible for New Yorkers.”

“The Woodgate Free Library has an impressive collection of local historical documents — in addition to antique and rare books of local interest — that this funding will help protect,” said Sandy Pascucci, director of Woodgate Free Library. “We truly appreciate Alder Creek Solar working with our community to preserve its history while also taking important steps toward the future.”

“We at Dodge-Pratt-Northam are so thankful to have the support of Alder Creek Solar in our efforts to expand the scope and reach of our community garden program,” said Amy Simanowski, DPN executive director. “This is a wonderful opportunity to provide a service to — and fill a need in — our community.”

“I am excited to continue Alder Creek’s philanthropic giving to organizations doing incredible and important work,” said David Holly, development manager for Alder Creek Solar. “Second only to developing projects that bring clean, renewable economic opportunity to communities like Boonville and Forestport, this is my favorite part of the job.” 

In previous grant cycles, Alder Creek Solar has supported local organizations including North Country Community Youth Soccer, Boonville Search and Rescue, Erwin Library and Institute, Boonville Little League and the Remsen Didymus Thomas Library.  

One of Alder Creek Solar’s primary goals is to be a strong community partner and establish long-term relationships with residents. The Community Grant Program is one way that Alder Creek Solar can contribute to community needs, help enrich lives and make a meaningful impact in Oneida County and surrounding communities.

Apex Clean Energy plans to offer grants at various times throughout the development process of Alder Creek Solar. You can find more information about the grant and how to apply at https://www.aldercreeksolar.com/grant.
