Standard Solar is developing a 38MW community solar pipeline in New York through the acquisition of six projects from US Light Energy, formerly known as Solitude Solar.

These six projects will be constructed on parcels of land totaling 72 hectares of land and will provide customers with renewable energy without the cost of equipment, installation and maintenance.

The six project sites, including one that will be developed at a repurposed landfill, will be located in the towns of Hunter, Clifton Park, Turin, Croghan and Denmark. They are located in two different utility territories across three different NYISO Load Zones.

Combined, the solar farms will be comprised of approximately 111,765 solar panels, which will produce approximately 46,725,000 kWh of electricity. This output is sufficient to power 3,775 typical American homes for a year.

Scott Wiater, president & CEO of Standard Solar, said: “New York has one of the most active community solar markets in the country, significantly boosted by the NY-Sun Initiative, Gov. Cuomo’s $1 billion initiative to advance the acceleration of solar in the state. We are proud to have the unique ability to finance and construct impactful community solar projects that will bring the benefits of clean, renewable energy to even more residents in the state.”
