Greenwood announces solar project at Ithaca College, NY
Greenwood Energy today announced it will finance and own a 2.9-megawatt (MW) capacity solar energy installation for Ithaca College. The array is located 40 miles from campus in Seneca, New York, but will meet 10 percent of the college’s electricity needs through virtual net metering and will be one of the largest for a higher education institution once complete.
“Smart policy innovations like virtual net metering further extend the economic and environmental benefits of solar power for New York’s educational and business communities,” said Camilo Patrignani, CEO of Greenwood Energy. “This installation brings Ithaca College one step closer to both New York’s 50 percent renewable energy target and America’s low-carbon energy future.”
