UGE completes nearly 250-kW community solar project on New York affordable housing apartment complex

UGE debuted its new rooftop community solar project at Tuckahoe Housing Authority. The project provides on-site clean energy to housing residents in the affordable housing apartment complex in Westchester County.

“Community solar is a win-win for everyone involved, allowing Tuckahoe Housing Authority to produce clean energy right on their rooftops, lower their energy costs and carbon emissions, and pass those savings on to residents,” said Mateo Chaskel, UGE USA’s managing director. “UGE is proud to provide financing so that there is no upfront cost for housing authorities to make the switch to solar.”

Tuckahoe Housing Authority will receive annual lease payments for hosting the solar project atop its properties, which are home to more than 300 residents. With the community solar project in place, the housing authority will also see savings reflected in its utility bills. UGE will own, operate and maintain the system for the entirety of the project’s lifetime, relieving the Housing Authority of any operational risk.

“Our goal is always to provide residents with safe, affordable housing, and clean, low-cost energy is a key aspect that supports this mission,” said Irina Matveevskii, executive director of the Tuckahoe Housing Authority. “UGE has made it easy to switch to community solar, and we’re excited to see the benefits it brings to our community.”

The project was supported by NYSERDA’s $1.8 billion NY-Sun initiative, which is aimed at advancing the scale-up of solar and moving the state closer to having a sustainable, self-sufficient solar industry.
