UGE to Develop Three New Solar Projects in New York City

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/6/2022, Location: North America

UGE International Ltd., a leader in the commercial and community solar sector, announces plans to develop three new community solar projects in the metro New York City region. All three rooftop projects, totalling 3MW, will be owned and operated by UGE. The electricity generated will provide local businesses and households with cleaner, cheaper electricity through community solar subscription agreements (see here for more information).

The value of these projects is further strengthened by the recently adopted updates to New York State's solar incentive program, NY-Sun. The New York incentives aim to support the state's goal of achieving 10GW of distributed solar electricity generation, enough to power 700,000 NY homes. Within the plan are specific focuses on low and moderate income communities, which are often best served by community solar.

Through the expansion of NY-Sun, $1.5 billion in ratepayer-funded incentives will be invested in distributed solar. This public investment is projected to catalyze an additional $4.4 billion in private investment. For community solar developers like UGE, this combined $5.9 billion in investment in the sector will allow for the expedited development of more solar projects across the state. UGE looks forward to continuing to grow on its experience in New York, including being one of the first developers operating in greater New York City.

"UGE continues to expand our capacity in New York, incorporating additional benefits to the community that the updated NY-Sun program offers," said Mateo Chaskel, UGE USA's Managing Director. "Our projects will have specific percentages allocated to low and moderate income offtakers, offering the benefits of low solar costs to a group of consumers who have historically found solar to be unaffordable."

UGE has significant experience in New York, with projects currently in development, construction, and operation that benefit small businesses, large corporations, and residential energy users from all walks of life. As a New York City-based company, UGE looks forward to continuing to be a leader in the development of clean, affordable energy for the largest metropolitan region in the country.
