ForeFront Power Completes Initial Development Of Community Solar In New York
ForeFront Power announces that the company's first Community Solar projects in New York are now operational, serving customers in the National Grid and Rochester Gas & Electric (RG&E) service territories.
The nine projects, representing 27 megawatts (MW) of capacity, are the first of a portfolio of over 75 MW across New York expected to be complete by the end of 2019.
ForeFront Power stated, "Community Solar allows utility customers, including those who rent or cannot install on-site solar, the option of purchasing up to 100 percent renewable energy from a local project while saving hundreds of dollars each year on electricity costs. Statewide, more than 10,000 subscribers will benefit from electricity bill savings and renewable energy from these projects."
For all these completed New York projects, ForeFront Power selected Arcadia Power to subscribe interested customers to a portion of the energy produced from these projects.
ForeFront Power is developing Community Solar projects to serve subscribers across Central Hudson Gas and Electric, ConEdison, National Grid, New York State Electric and Gas (NYSEG), Orange and Rockland Utilities, and Rochester Gas & Electric utility service territories.
