What Makes New York a Special Place for Solar Projects?

As a landowner in New York, chances are alternative energy companies have contacted you many times over the past few years about setting up a solar farm on your property. The market is hot right now, having grown by a whopping 575% over the past four years.

Now, time is running out to lease land for solar in New York. Is this the right time to act?

“With more than 1 gigawatt of community solar farms in operation, New York State is already leading the nation in this rapidly growing industry. This 1 gigawatt is a drop in the bucket compared to the state’s ambitious goal of building 10 gigawatts in total of distributed solar by 2030 in order to achieve the equally ambitious goal of having 70% of the state’s power coming from clean and reliable renewable sources by the close of the decade. The bulk of this 10 gigawatts, enough to power over 2 million homes, will come from community solar farms. This transformation is expected to unleash total investment of $4.4 billion and supplement local economies throughout the upstate region.”

“Solar farms can be built anywhere where there is sufficient grid infrastructure and the topography allows it. State-of-the-art technologies allow projects to maximize production from tracking of the sun even in the coldest and snowiest regions so there is literally nowhere in New York State that can’t be powered by the sun given the right attention to the project development process.”
