New York is one of the Fastest Growing Solar Markets in the USA
NEW YORK, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Charles Feit, CEO and founder of OnForce Solar, Inc., a leader in the design, finance, and installation of large-scale solar electric systems for commercial customers, announced that the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) recently awarded the company an additional $6 million to develop and construct large-scale solar projects in New York State under Governor Cuomo’s NY-Sun initiative. With this newest round of funding, OnForce has been awarded more funds than any other company nationally under this very competitive award program.
With projects from Niagara Falls to Staten Island, OnForce is the clear leader in New York State Solar development. OnForce is in the final stages of launching a 1.1MW project in the South Bronx which will be the largest solar array ever constructed in New York City.
Mr. Feit stated, “Thanks to the strong support of Governor Cuomo and the NY-Sun Initiative, we have over $40 million of solar energy projects under various stages of development, permitting and construction throughout the state, and we project this number will double to $80 million by the 1st quarter of 2014 “.
In addition to the South Bronx project, OnForce is about to break ground on a 2.5MW project at the West Nyack Landfill under a Power Purchase Agreement with the town of Clarkstown. The project will consist of more than 8,000 solar panels and will operate through a new remote net metering program with Orange & Rockland. The power will be allocated to various city owned buildings. OnForce will own and operate the solar facility, and The Town of Clarkstown will purchase all of the solar generated electricity over a period of 20 years. OnForce is developing additional solar on landfill projects throughout the country based on this unique public/private model.
OnForce is actively seeking rooftops to “rent” where the firm will install, own and operate solar systems under the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) structure, providing substantial savings to the property owner. OnForce also has many other financing alternatives and mechanisms to make this investment easy and seamless for the business/property owner. OnForce Solar is also one of a few select Companies with the ability to do large-scale solar projects in New York in coordination with NYSERDA.
OnForce Solar has developed strong relationships with photovoltaic manufacturers, warranty certified roofers, financial institutions, and utilities to provide clients with opportunities to go green in a financially advantageous manner. The company manages every aspect of the solar integrated installation -from site acquisition to engineering and long-term maintenance, so customers get all the benefits of solar power as quickly as possible. OnForce Solar has completed and advised an excess of 40MW of Solar PV with a pipeline of around 60MW.
“We’re very proud of our company’s collective accomplishments, its strong contribution to the proliferation of solar in New York, the many jobs we’re creating, and the positive impact we are having in all the communities in which we operate.” stated Mr. Feit.
