Novis Renewables’ North Eagle Village, Green Lakes, and Judd Rd Solar Farms in the State of New York
reach Commercial Operation
Irvington/Milan, 19 April 2022 – Novis Renewables Holdings, LLC, the US partnership for the development of solar, onshore wind and storage between Falck Renewables North America Inc. and Eni New Energy US Inc., a fully owned subsidiary of Plenitude (Eni), adds 22.5 MW of new solar capacity with its North Eagle Village (Manlius, NY), Green Lakes (Manlius, NY), and Judd Rd (Whitestown, NY) plants reaching Commercial Operations Date (COD).
Each solar project (7.5 MW) is expected to produce around 9 GWh of clean electricity annually, the equivalent to the consumption of around 860 US households.
All projects have been conceived with a strong community engagement approach. For the first 25 years of operation, revenues from the three projects will be generated and contracted via the VDER* community solar program, which allows commercial and residential subscribers to utilize bill credits generated by the project. These bill credits are allocated towards subscribers’ electricity bill, typically lowering monthly electricity costs by around 10%.
In addition to revenue generated from the VDER program, North Eagle Village, Green Lakes, and Judd Rd will also receive cash incentives from 2 NYSERDA** programs (NY-Sun and Community Credit). At the end of the 25-year VDER program, all projects will earn revenue via merchant sale of energy, capacity and Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs).
