Hochul announces 22 large-scale solar projects across state

Posted

ALBANY — Gov. Kathy Hochul has announced awards for 22 large-scale solar and energy storage projects that will deliver enough clean, affordable energy to power over 620,000 New York homes for at least 20 years, according to an announcement from her office.

Among the projects announced were the Newport Solar Farm by the Newport Deerfield Solar LLC, a Boralex affiliate which will build a 130-megawatt solar facility in the towns of Deerfield and Marcy in Oneida County and Newport in Herkimer County and the Columbia Solar Energy Center, by Columbia Solar Energy Center LLC, an EDF Renewables affiliate, which will build a 350-megawatt solar facility with 20 megawatts of co-located energy storage in the towns of Columbia and Litchfield, Herkimer County.

The projects, the announcement said, will spur over $2.7 billion in private investment and create over 3,000 short- and long-term jobs across the state and accelerate progress to exceed New York’s goal to obtain 70% of the state’s electricity from renewable sources by 2030 on the path to a zero-emission grid by 2040 as required by Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act.

“Today’s investments will put us on a path to making New York a greener place to live while also creating new jobs and spurring economic development,” Hochul said.
