NY buying land for solar plant

Buffalo, N.Y. (AP) -- New York state has reached an agreement to buy the rest of the land needed for a solar-energy manufacturing complex planned for Buffalo.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the $2.8 million purchase from the city on Tuesday.

The state's already bought 88 acres of former brownfields from the Buffalo Urban Development Corp. for $2.5 million. The latest purchase adds 96 acres.

The site once housed a steel plant but is now targeted to become the Buffalo High-Tech Manufacturing Innovation Hub. As part of an economic development initiative, the state will invest $225 million to build facilities that will be used by clean-energy manufacturing companies. Two California companies, Soraa and Silevo, which has been acquired by Solar City, have signed on as the first two tenants.
