Construction underway on 16.4-MW New York community solar portfolio

EDF Renewables North America started construction on three community solar projects which will deliver 16.4 MW of clean energy to National Grid customers in central New York.

This marks the first phase of a 50-MW community solar project portfolio consisting of eight projects in Vernon, Verona, Oswegatchie, Frankfort and Rosendale.

National Grid customers who enroll in the community solar program are eligible to receive renewable energy at a guaranteed discount over the standard electricity costs.

New York set a goal of 100% zero-emission electricity by 2040 and reduced emissions by at least 85% below 1990 levels by 2050.

“EDF Renewables is excited to bring clean renewable energy to New York and appreciates the collaboration of the communities in which we work to help us build community solar projects that support New York climate goals,” said Margaret Campbell, senior business development manager at EDF Renewables. “Now that New York Gov. Kathy Hochul has expanded goals for the installation of distributed solar from 6 GW to at least 10 GW by 2030, EDF Renewables is similarly expanding our efforts to bring clean renewable distributed solar projects to help power New York.”

The Climate Act will transform how every New Yorker generates and uses electricity, the way they heat their homes and how they commute to work and school.
