This year, Nexamp was eager to take part in the National Solar Tour by opening not 1, but 3 community solar farms in New York for current subscribers and interested local residents to visit.
Coordinated by the American Solar Energy Society and Solar United Neighbors, the National Solar Tour is the largest renewable energy event in the nation. The tour kicked off the weekend of October 5th, with more than 750 open house events across 45 states. Communities gathered throughout the nation to learn more about solar options and to see solar installations up close.
The free tours allowed individuals an opportunity to see solar panels up close, ask questions about how solar works, and learn why people in their community made the choice to go solar. Here’s where our open houses took place:
Wawayanda Solar, New York
Nestled on a 4-acre section of a larger 45-acre parcel of land that is primarily undisturbed wetlands and forest lies Nexamp’s first completed project in the Orange & Rockland utility area. With over 2,400 panels, this array allows community solar customers to save on their monthly utility bills, while supporting clean energy. About a dozen individuals attend the open house, and all of them were excited to learn more about solar energy production like these two below!
Rochester-Accord Solar, New York
Serving Central Hudson customers, Rochester-Accord Solar features more than 14,000 panels with 7.1M kWh estimated annual production. Town administrators, subscribers, local residents, and media attended the open house.
Brunswick Solar, New York
Generating enough clean energy to power hundreds of local homes, Brunswick Solar features nearly 14,000 solar panels on just over 20 acres of previously underdeveloped land in Brunswick, NY. Located outside Albany, this project serves National Grid subscribers across the Capitol Region area.
Whether you’re a community solar subscriber, new to solar, or maybe just somewhere in between, the National Solar Tour is a great opportunity to learn more about your solar options.
