CS Energy developed and constructed this 27 MW DC large-scale solar mission in Easton, N.Y.
CS Energy has been awarded three utility-scale solar initiatives from the New York State Energy Research and Development Agency (NYSERDA) below its fifth annual Renewable Energy Standard request for proposals.
As proposed, and as soon as operational, these initiatives would ship 270 MW AC / 365 MW DC of latest renewable energy era capability to the state. Construction is deliberate to start in 2025 and shall be accomplished in 2026. These initiatives will generate over 500,000 MWh of renewable energy per yr for New York ratepayers.
“As the first company to successfully develop and construct large scale solar in upstate New York, we are proud to continue playing a leading role in the deployment of NYSERDA’s large-scale renewables program,” says Eric Millard, chief industrial officer at CS Energy. “Our personalized approach and hands-on experience collaborating with municipalities, state and local agencies, communities, local labor, and New York businesses sets us apart in helping New York achieve its renewable energy goals.”
“With the help of partners like CS Energy, New York is growing a pipeline of over 120 large-scale renewable projects that bring us closer to reaching our climate and clean energy goals while at the same time delivering cleaner air, new green jobs and local tax revenue to communities across the state,” feedback Doreen M. Harris, president and CEO of NYSERDA. “These newly awarded projects are another example of CS Energy’s ongoing commitment to investing in New York and help to build on the company’s successful completion of Branscomb Solar – the first utility-scale solar project outside Long Island – and more projects like it that will deliver clean power to the grid before the end of year.”
The three initiatives, amongst these chosen from over 50 bidding services, are a part of a aggressive 22-project procurement portfolio. Each considered one of these CS Energy initiatives will deploy single-axis monitoring know-how and bifacial solar panels. Stern Solar is a 19.99 MW AC / 27 MW DC mission in Schaghticoke in Rensselaer County. York Run Solar consists of a 90 MW AC / 122 MW DC solar farm in Busti and Kiantone, positioned in Chautauqua County.
Yellow Barn Solar is 160 MW AC / 216 MW DC mission in Lansing and Groton in Tompkins County. CS Energy’s largest mission is positioned lower than 10 miles from the Cayuga coal plant, which was retired in 2019.
