Standard Solar brings clean energy savings to 28 municipalities and school districts in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence Counties in New York

Standard Solar and their developer partner, US LIght Energy, are supporting New York state’s initiative to aggressively deploy clean energy with this 11.52 MW-combined solar project. The arrays are bringing between $400-500,000 in electricity savings to the members of the Tri-County Energy Consortium, a group made up of 28 municipalities and school districts.

Standard Solar funded the system and is the long-term owner and operator. The $7.6 million project took three years to complete and is partially funded by New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s $1.8 billion NY-Sun initiative. NY-Sun is designed to help the state expand its solar deployment and increase accessibility of clean energy.

The Tri-County Energy Consortium consists of Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence Counties. Each participating member of the consortium receives electricity bill savings in proportion to the percentage of electricity they use out of the total participants.
