CVE North America developed these projects utilizing Solar FlexRack solar trackers. These projects bring the total number of completed solar projects between CS Energy and CVE North America to over 50 MW.
All four projects will provide discounted utility bills to more than 4,000 low- and middle-income residents and are expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2023.
“We selected CS Energy for this series of projects because of our strong alignment on transparency, integrity and efficiency,” said Ben Dereume, CVE North America CTO. “CS Energy provided exceptional customer service on the last seven projects we worked together in Massachusetts – from value engineering to overcoming supply chain constraints to assisting with permitting and city requests. We fully expect CS Energy to prove to be a reliable partner on these additional projects as well.
Community solar projects in New York have been found to offer local residents an average of 5-10% off their energy bills.
In addition to providing savings to local residents of Western New York State, this portfolio of projects also contributes to the state’s goal of generating 70 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030 and the Governor’s goal of achieving 10 GW of solar by 2030. In total, these projects will avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 192,330 miles driven by gasoline-powered cars per year.
