Located across the State, the five projects: Pulaski, Main Street, Robinson Road, Church A, and Wayside Drive support broad consumer access to solar-powered electricity generation through the NYSERDA VDER program
New York, NY: 7 September 2021 – Renewable energy developer and independent power producer, OYA Solar, has started construction on 25 MWDC of community solar projects in New York State, in addition to the 7 MWDC solar project, State Route 122A in Franklin County, already under construction.
OYA Solar is proud of its efforts to expand access to solar energy and the benefits provided to the businesses and residents located in Jefferson, Livingston, Onondaga, and Oswego Counties, while supporting the State’s initiative to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. These four projects are expected to generate approximately 895,000 MWh of power and offset approximately 699,000 tons of carbon dioxide over the 25+ year of operations.
“OYA Solar has an ambitious goal of becoming one of the largest constructors and operators of community solar projects that will support New York’s transition to a cleaner and more resilient energy source,” says Manish Nayar, CEO and Founder of OYA Solar. “Our strong development and construction platform has a proven track record in New York, and more broadly across the Northeast U.S. and Canada, and we embrace our role as a driver of solar energy expansion and accessibility.”
In addition to the six community solar projects under construction, OYA Solar expects to build another 140 MWDC of community solar projects in New York by the end of next year. Beyond New York State, OYA Solar has completed solar projects across the Northeast U.S. and Canada, and has a 2 GWDC pipeline of community solar and utility-scale projects.
