This New York town partnered with CleanChoice Energy to provide community solar to its residents

CleanChoice Energy is introducing town partnerships for its CleanChoice Community Solar offerings. The company’s first Community Solar Partnership is with the Village of Wappingers Falls, where CleanChoice Energy will serve as the town’s preferred provider of community solar, allowing local residents to realize savings while working toward the town’s sustainability goals. Wappingers Falls’ residents can subscribe to CleanChoice Energy’s new portfolio of local community solar farms and save up to 10 percent on their utility bills.

“Our partnership with CleanChoice Energy will help us achieve our sustainability goals and make solar more accessible for our residents,” said Mayor Matt Alexander. “We have been working on efficiency and renewable energy initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and costs for our community over the past 13 years. We realized rooftop solar is not available to everyone and wanted to come up with a way for tenants and homes with too much shade or older roofs to support solar energy and still achieve savings.”

“CleanChoice Energy Community Solar is a great way for people to save money and support local solar growth. By partnering with local governments such as the Village of Wappingers Falls, we’re able to increase public awareness of these community solar benefits,” said Tom Matzzie, founder and CEO of CleanChoice Energy. “We’re proud to announce our first Community Solar Partnership with Wappingers Falls and look forward to working with other cities and towns in the future.”

The CleanChoice Energy Community Solar platform connects people to regional solar projects, allowing residents and businesses to simply and easily support local solar.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
