sPower and utility PSEG Long Island have completed a PV installation in Riverhead, New York. The project has an installed generation capacity of 20MW and will generate power for approximately 2,870 homes on a yearly basis. 

With the state of New York looking to completely decarbonize its electricity system by 2040, the Riverhead project will help the Empire State move towards that goal by removing 23,970 metric tons of CO2 each year.

During its eight months of construction, the Riverhead project employed approximately 220 workers who logged nearly 71,000 hours of paid labor. In total, the project added over US$8 million in local wages to Long Island’s economy. sPower will remain the operator of the Riverhead project. 

 sPower CEO, Ryan Creamer, said: “We are honored to be long-term neighbors with Long Island communities. Bringing solar power to this state sets an example of civic responsibility to the rest of the country. Working hard with PSEG Long Island and numerous other teams was critical in making this vision a reality. I am proud of this milestone we’ve achieved and the teamwork that was demonstrated throughout the entire process.”

Paul Napoli, vice president of power markets, PSEG Long Island, added: “PSEG Long Island is a proud supporter of a clean renewable energy future on Long Island. We commend sPower for its innovation and working with us to provide clean energy to our customers and helping to reduce the dependency on fossil fuels in our region.”
