Eco Engineering, LightEdison and Source Renewables are developing 100 MW of solar in New York using Ideematec’s Horizon L:TEC solar tracking system.
“Partnering with Ideematec’s expert team allows us to bring maximum overall portfolio value and support reliable, clean energy for New Yorkers,” said Osea Nelson, partner at LightEdison. “We are drawn to the Horizon L:TEC’s ability to withstand upstate New York’s extreme weather environments, streamlined installation process and bankability. We’re also confident in the team at Ideematec, who recognizes the value of transparency and ongoing communication for a multi-sited portfolio of this size.”
The companies will first deploy a 25-MW portfolio of community solar projects in National Grid service territory that are registered under New York’s NY-Sun program. The program lets local businesses, homeowners and communities choose clean energy sources.
“We are pleased to partner with this expert development and design-build team to advance clean energy adoption in New York. The flexible configuration and locking technology of our two-in-portrait tracker are an ideal combination for the demanding environments and challenging terrains in the Northeast,” said Philipp Klemm, CEO at Ideematec.
Eco Engineering/LightEdison will lead the portfolio’s procurement efforts as a joint venture in partnership with Source Renewables, a clean energy development company.
