Solar Lease Benefits

OYA Solar has started development on a solar farm located in Orleans, Jefferson County, and on land leased from a local landowner. Once this solar farm is active the landowner will receive payments for the next 25 years from the solar lease with OYA Solar.

The local community benefits from the solar project through a community solar program and the clean energy generated (7 MWdc) by the project and sent directly to the grid for distribution.

Subscriptions to the community solar program offer up to a 10% discount on electricity costs and are open for local businesses, government agencies, and residents in the same utility region.

You can reserve your spot now in the community solar program to receive your discounted energy when the project is online.
