Statement on BESS Facilities In The Town of Southampton

Town Board Meeting

On Thursday, July 20th at 10:30AM, the Southampton Town Board will hold a Special Meeting to consider a resolution to schedule a public hearing on August 8th at 1PM, to impose a moratorium that will affect all Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS), including the current proposal before the Planning Board.

The moratorium, if enacted, will last six months in duration. The moratorium will allow the Town Board to study the current code, and make sure it is sufficient to address public safety concerns. It will allow changes to the code that may force changes to the current project and could render it non-code compliant. The moratorium will prevent any processing by the Planning Board and will prevent the building inspector from issuing any permits to construct a BESS facility. It will also prevent ZBA action. The resolution is sponsored by the full Town Board.

A copy of the notice of public hearing resolution will be made available when the agenda for the Special Meeting is published prior to the special meeting.
