Milestone Represents Enough Clean Energy to Serve 393,000 Homes and Reaffirms State’s Position as Top Community Solar Market in the United States
New York state's power grid met about 20% of its electricity demand with energy from the sun for one hour last week, marking the highest ever output from solar generation
The 6.4-MW solar farm will produce the entirety of its clean energy on behalf of the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority, which serves low-to-moderate income residential customers.
New York residents are paying some of the highest electricity rates in years due to fuel shortages and limited availability of gas pipelines. Solar panels could be a viable energy alternative.
