Empower Energies (Empower) is pleased to announce the execution of 5 distributed generation solar projects totaling 35.3 MW with our EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) Services division in upstate New York. These projects were awarded to Empower by a leading clean energy developer as part of a competitive bidding process.
Patrick Corr, Chief Strategy Officer at Empower Energies, said, “We are proud to have the opportunity to complete these projects in NY and help move the needle toward achieving the state’s Clean Energy Standard.”
New York’s Clean Energy Standard mandates that 70% of New York’s electricity come from renewable energy sources by 2030. These distributed generation solar projects range in size from 6-8 MW each and will make a significant impact on the state’s clean energy and emissions targets.
