Closer look at the new solar plan in Geneva

While the solar home development proposed for the town will be similar to a current city project, there will be differences.

Ryan and Tracey Wallace, along with some of their associates, attended Tuesday’s Town Board meeting to discuss plans for a solar village near the Geneva Community Center. If approved by town officials, it will be on land the Wallaces own near their Carter Road home.

Ryan Wallace is chief executive officer and a partner in the Solar Home Factory on Forge Avenue. That’s where homes are being built for Lake Tunnel Solar Village, a development near the Routes 5&20 arterial in the city.

Tracey Wallace owns the Solar Village Co., which oversees Lake Tunnel Solar Village, as well as the development earmarked for the town. The town project will include single-family homes and townhome-style apartments. The apartments, called solar pods, will rent from $900 to $1,750 a month. Tracey Wallace said the leases are unique, because a single bill covers a lot of services.

“It’s almost everything you need to live: heat, power, water, sewer, internet, refuse pickup, recycling, composting,” she said. “There is even an electric vehicle share program.”
