Ithaca College, which is in the town of the same name in upstate New York, announced yesterday that it is building a 9,215 panel solar park about 40 miles away from the campus.
Project co-developer OneEnergy Renewables secured a $1.6 million grant through Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s $1 billion NY-Sun initiative, which is designed to build a self-sustaining solar industry in New York and help achieve strategic energy goals. NYSERDA says the grant is critical to the project’s financial viability and will fund roughly 25% of the total cost to develop and build the project.
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and Ithaca College today announced that construction is underway on a 2.9 megawatt (MW) solar electric project that will provide enough electricity to meet approximately 10 percent of the college’s energy needs. The project will produce clean, renewable and sustainable energy for the college, lower its energy costs and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.
