  TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to authorizing the county of Monroe to convey appro- priate instruments to EH Henrietta Solar 1 LLC and EH Henrietta Solar 2 LLC for an easement across Lehigh Valley Trail Park, for ingress and egress to and from the project site and installation of a medium voltage cable   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 authorizes the County of Monroe (the "County") to grant to EH Henrietta Solar 1 LLC and EH Henrietta Solar 2 LLC an easement across Lehigh Valley Trail Park. The purpose of the easement is to install and maintain an access road for ingress and egress, and to install, operate and maintain a subsurface cable to facilitate electric grid intercon- nection. Upon completion of the improvements, the land shall continue to be used as a park and any disturbances to the surface of the land due to the subsurface medium voltage cable shall be restored. Section 2 provides that the authorization to convey the easement shall be effective only upon the condition that the county of Monroe dedicate the fair market value of the easement towards the acquisition of new parklands and/or capitol improvements to existing park and recreational facilities. Section 3 includes the description of the easement. Section 4 provides that if the subsurface cable ceases to be used for electrical gird interconnection, the easement shall terminate. At the time of such termination, the removal of the access road and subsurface cable shall take place and the property shall be returned to its previ- ous state, consistent with park and recreational purposes. Section 5 conditions the transfer upon the County's compliance with applicable federal requirements pertaining to the alienation or conver- sion of parklands. Section 6 is effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: New York State has a comprehensive and ambitious goal of achieving 70% renewably sourced electricity by 2030 and a zero-emission electric grid by 2040. GreenSpark Solar is a company fully committed to this objec- tive. As always, actions speak louder than words, and GreenSpark Solar's actions in the solar sector have been remarkable.
