Invenergy, North America's largest independent renewable power generation company, announced that it has received unanimous approval from the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) for a power purchase agreement (PPA) for its proposed 24.9MW Shoreham Solar Commons facility in the town of Brookhaven in Long Island, New York.

The installation, which will be the second-largest solar array east of the Mississippi, is expected to produce enough power to supply 3,500 homes. Invenergy plans to build the site on Brookhaven’s former Tallgrass Golf Course, which will require no cutting of trees. In addition, Invenergy plans to plant an additional 1,500 trees at the site.

Kevin Parzyck, Invenergy’s Vice President of Development, “LIPA’s unanimous approval of the power purchase agreement is a huge milestone for this project, which will be the largest of its kind in such close proximity to Manhattan. With the development of Shoreham Solar Commons, Invenergy aims to solve the energy challenges that face the greater New York City area, the largest, most densely populated city in the nation.”

During construction, Shoreham Solar Commons will generate 175 local jobs. The site is expected to generate between US$700,000 and US$900,000 in annual tax revenue, up to ten times what the Tall Grass Golf Course currently generates.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
