Community Solar & Energy Savings

March 05, 2021

Residents of New York State’s Central Hudson, Orange & Rockland, NYSEG, and the RGE utility territories can take advantage of no-risk community solar contracts.

Delaware River Solar offers one-year community solar subscriptions without long term commitments or cancellation fees providing the most efficient means for solar accessibility in New York.

DRS community solar farms bring green, renewable energy to residents and businesses while saving them money on their electric bills. The first DRS project, situated in beautiful Sullivan County, was completed in 2017/2018 and generates clean energy for many New Yorkers while saving them money on their electric bills. From 2018 through 2020 DRS built over 20 more projects and is currently building dozens more throughout the NYSEG and RGE electric service territories in New York. DRS also manages projects in Central Hudson and Orange & Rockland and customers in those utilities have an opportunity to participate in community solar and save on their electric bills as well. Residential customers receive a 10% discount on the power produced on their behalf each month. There are no added fees of any kind, only savings.

In addition to the clean, renewable energy and bill savings that community solar brings to area residents, each project provides additional revenue to the town, creates 30 plus construction jobs, and protects multiple acres of unused farmland for future use.

DRS plans to construct 10-20 new solar farms in 2021. Each solar project serves 300-1000 customers and offsets millions of pounds of carbon emissions annually. Solar development is a critical strategy in meeting New York’s State renewable energy initiative to provide 50% of the state’s energy needs with renewables by 2030. Residents have the ability to save with no-risk, no cost subscriptions. It’s a win-win for all.
