CleanChoice Energy developing 6.8-MW New York community solar project

New energy equality and CleanChoice Energy plans a 6.8 MW community solar project in New York, with construction to begin in 2022. The McCormick Community Solar Garden will be located in Andover.

“CleanChoice has an excellent track record as a developer in New York and as a leading subscription aggregator. New Energy Equity is delighted to partner with them in developing this solar garden for the village of Andover,” said Matt Hankey, president, co-founder and CEO of New Energy Equity. “We look forward to having a long and successful relationship with CleanChoice and working together to bring great solar projects to the communities of New York.”

The McCormick Community Solar Garden site is located in a floodplain and requires special flood detection technology to store the panels horizontally in the event of a flood. The energy generated by the solar garden offers local subscribers the opportunity to use clean solar energy while reducing their energy costs.

“Community solar is critical to expanding access to clean energy – and we are excited to partner with New Energy Equity to deliver the benefits of solar to the community,” said Tom Matzzie, CEO and founder of CleanChoice Energy. “CleanChoice is committed to making the transition to cleaning easier for everyone. The McCormick Community Solar Garden is a big step toward that goal.”
