Construction of the first solar + storage array for New York campus underway
The State University of New
York at Fredonia (SUNY Fredonia) announced that construction is starting on its
first solar/battery project. The New York Power Authority (NYPA), as the
campus’ energy advisor, is overseeing the project.
Selected in a competitive
bidding process, the state’s strategic partners Oriden, a Mitsubishi Hitachi
Power Systems venture, and Solar Liberty are designing, installing and
financing the 1.4-MW ground-mount solar plus 500-kW, 3-hour energy storage
The solar-plus-storage solution
will provide about 1.7 gigawatt hours of energy and offset an average 432,000
pounds of carbon dioxide each year, the companies said.
The project — located on the
north edge of campus between the New York State Thruway and the Blue Devil
softball field — will be hosted by the campus, and SUNY Fredonia will purchase
all energy produced through a power purchase agreement.
