As Aris CEO Bill O’Brien commented: “Aris Energy Solutions is thrilled to introduce our first community solar distributed generation project thanks to the tremendous groundwork by New York’s Reforming the Energy Vision initiative (REV), NYSERDA, Con Ed, Green Power Solutions, and PowerMarkets. The NY REV mandate allows us to make renewable/sustainable power, provide access to Solar Power for local residents who might not otherwise be able, and still provide sufficient return for the building owners.”
NYSERDA’s Director of its NY-Sun program, David Sandbank added:
“Congratulations to Aris Energy Solutions and the community of Mt. Vernon for coming together to advance New York’s fight against climate change with this multi-pronged approach to decrease greenhouse gases, reduce consumer energy bills, and protect out natural resources for future generations. Governor Cuomo’s ambitious clean energy and climate goals are providing a clear path of success for all communities to participate in the state’s clean energy agenda and this project is a tremendous example of putting innovation investment to work for all.”
