Green Street Power Partners (GSPP) announced that construction has begun on a 5.54 MW solar project located in New Windsor, NY–the largest community solar project in the state of New York to date. Combined, the systems are expected to produce over 7 GWh annually, powering over 750 households in areas serviced by Central Hudson Gas & Electric.
“The future of solar is in community distributed generation, which is why we’ve taken an aggressive approach to expanding our community solar portfolio,” said Scott Kerner, CEO of Green Street Power Partners. “We’re especially excited to be a part of the largest community solar project in the state of New York, as it contributes significantly to the state’s, as well as the country’s, renewable energy needs.”
Community solar provides renewable energy to residents who either do not own a home or do not have ideal conditions for a solar array onsite. The community solar program in New Windsor will run for 25 years and over the lifetime of the system it will collectively provide over $2,000,000 in savings to residents while displacing 140,657 tons of carbon.
The New Windsor community solar program will be accepting applications soon.
