Signups underway for community solar array in Tompkins County

A group of community solar projects that will provide over $2 million in electricity cost savings is coming to the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions.

The three projects in Newfield, totaling 7.5 megawatts, began construction in April and are slated for full commercial operations this fall.

All New York State Electric & Gas Corp. customers in the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions are eligible to benefit directly from the projects through New York state’s Community Distributed Generation program. Under that program, utility customers may subscribe to solar provider Nexamp’s projects and receive savings directly on their utility bills.
