ALBANY, N.Y. (PRWEB) June 25, 2019
Common Energy is pleased to announce that it has successfully subscribed two additional community solar projects in the capital region, and now has a number of additional projects available across New York State, in National Grid, NYSEG, Central Hudson, and Orange and Rockland Utilities service territories.
The two completed projects, located in Johnstown, NY, will generate approximately 6 million kilowatt hours of clean electricity each year, enough to power approximately 690 homes. Participants in the program receive clean energy credits on their National Grid bill each month and will save on average $3,000 over the life of the project. By supporting the project, subscribers also help prevent 2.4 million pounds of carbon emissions from entering the environment, benefitting the entire Johnstown community and beyond.
Common Energy worked in partnership with Kearsarge Energy, developer of the project, and National Grid to complete and connect the projects. In addition, these projects are part of New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA)’s Solar For All program, which brings clean energy to lower income families and others in need.
“We are pleased to be part of these important projects that bring real economic and environmental benefits to the entire community” said Common Energy’s Founder and CEO, Richard Keiser. “Affordable clean energy has never been easier to access, and we are proud to enable residents and businesses across the region this opportunity to save money and lower emissions.”
Common Energy also announced the availability of additional projects in New York State, including in National Grid, NYSEG, Central Hudson, and Orange and Rockland service territories. These projects offer even more residents the opportunity to save money and lower emissions, and as such, are a key part of meeting New York’s renewable energy targets.
