The projects listed below account for nearly 40% of the total 2,408 MW awarded, and expect to deliver clean electricity by the end of 2025:
- Columbia Solar Energy Center: 350 MWac with 20 MW of co-located storage sited on approximately 2,000 acres in the towns of Columbia and Litchfield, Herkimer County.
- Ridge View Solar Energy Center: 350 MWac with 20 MW of co-located storage sited on approximately 2,000 acres in Hartland, Niagara County.
- Rich Road Solar Energy Center: 240 MWac with 20 MW of co-located storage sited on approximately 1,500 acres in the town of Canton, St. Lawrence County.
Stephane Desdunes, Senior Director Development of the Northeast Region, EDF Renewables, said, “The team has worked diligently to progress the development of our New York solar portfolio since 2017. We are proud of the fact we have been awarded 1,313 MW of the 2020 and 2021 procurements and 1,483 MW in total since 2018. With more than 1,000 MW of solar and storage projects still in the development pipeline, EDF Renewables looks forward to working side by side with NYSERDA and New York State to achieve the 70% by 2030 goal and deliver clean energy to the residents of New York.”
The company’s plans of community engagement for the Columbia, Rich Road and Ridge View Solar Projects comprise annual-basis scholarships for students in the project area school districts with trade or clean energy interests, and an annual Sharing the Sun Fund for local community organizations during the construction phase whereby local review committees will select the awardees.
It is also one of the largest renewable energy developers in North America with 24 gigawatts of wind, solar, and storage projects developed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
