Catalyze announced it celebrated the operation of its Amherst solar farm with a ribbon cutting attended by local officials.
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. The Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority project was enrolled by Ampion, a community solar subscription management company. Over 1,300 housing units are subscribed to the Amherst solar farm.
The Amherst solar farm is helping the Town of Amherst fulfill its role as a NYSERDA Clean Energy Community, contributing to New York’s goals of distributed solar generation, as well as the need for projects to benefit disadvantaged communities.
Solar Windependence is a division of All Island Group, an award winning company that has been constructing projects for the outdoor environment for over 30 years, including electrical and plumbing contracting, custom designed gunite swimming pools, irrigation and lighting systems, spas, fencing, cabanas, and recreational courts as well as many other green energy projects.
