Genesee Road Solar

About

New York is leading the nation, with a goal of using 70% renewables by 2030, and EDF Renewables is leading the solar energy charge starting with the Genesee Road Solar Energy Center. A growing solution to energy demands, solar power is a safe, clean technology that NY residents and businesses want now. The initiatives outlined in the State Energy Plan can be found here.

The Genesee Road Solar project is a proposed 350-megawatt (MW) photovoltaic (PV) solar energy generation facility, which may include approximately 50 MW (200 megawatt-hours [MWh]) of energy storage, in the Towns of Sardinia and Concord, Erie County, New York. The Facility will safely generate enough clean, renewable electricity to power approximately 80,000 New York households. The Facility will interconnect to the New York power grid via a new Point of Interconnection (POI) in the Town of Sardinia, tapping into New York State Electric & Gas’s Southwest to Stolle Road 345 kilovolt (“kV”) transmission line which runs through the project area. The Facility will be sited on approximately 2,200 acres of leased private and mostly cleared land.
