OYA Solar has started construction on 25 MW of community solar projects in New York State in addition to the 7 MW solar project, State Route 122A in Franklin County, already in the construction process.
These projects will benefit businesses and residents located in Jefferson, Livingston, Onondaga, and Oswego Counties, while supporting the State’s initiative to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. These five 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 MW of community solar projects in New York by the end of 2021. Beyond New York State, OYA Solar has completed solar projects across the Northeast U.S. and Canada, and has a 2 GW pipeline of community solar and utility-scale projects.
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.
