OYA Renewables announced that the 6.7-MWDC Robinson Road solar farm in Orleans, New York, has reached commercial operation and will support broad consumer access to solar-powered electricity generation across the state.
The community solar project completed the final stage of commissioning in June of 2022.
“We applaud the State of New York for being a driving force in the renewable energy transition with innovative programs to accelerate the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the cost of electricity,” said Manish Nayar, founder and chairman of OYA Renewables. “We see the immediate impact on subscribers to OYA’s community solar programs as each new solar project goes online and a zero-carbon future comes closer to being realized.”
The project received $1.4 million in support through NYSERDA’s NY-Sun program, the state’s signature $1.8 billion initiative to advance the scale-up of solar while driving energy costs down and making solar energy more accessible to homes, businesses and communities. The project advances New York’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act goal to generate 70% of the state’s electricity from renewable sources by 2030.
