Residents United to Save our Hometown (R.U.S.H.) is a community group located in Rush, New York that is concerned about the future of our town. We are opposed to industrial-scale solar energy production on prime agricultural land. 

  • Over 145 area residents have joined Residents United to Save our Hometown. They provide time, expertise and financial support.

  • The NYS Department of Public Service awarded R.U.S.H. $21,000 to help with legal expenses and subject matter experts. Similar amounts went to the Towns of Rush and Caledonia.

  • Our eight-member Steering Committee oversees the work of R.U.S.H. Subcommittees, Communications, Legal issues, Meetings, Membership, and Financial contributions. We also formed three Subcommittees:
    • Public Awareness Committee: fliers, signs, door to door canvassing
    • Solar Law Subcommittee: Strengthening Town Solar Law
    • Horseshoe Solar Stipulations Subcommittee

  • We need your expertise and help to identify overlooked areas of concern in the Invenergy Horseshoe Solar Application. We are challenging faulty or biased studies offered by Invenergy in support of their application. We need to create valid alternative arguments that support the concerns and position of area residents.

While, this is a good start, but it is not enough – We need your support and help!
