Homer Solar Energy Center

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 Homer 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 Homer Solar Energy Center is a proposed 90-megawatt (MW) photovoltaic (PV) solar energy generation facility, which may include approximately 20 MW (80 megawatt-hours [MWh]) of energy storage, located in the Towns of Homer, Cortlandville, and Solon, Cortland County, New York. The Facility will safely generate enough clean, renewable electricity to power more than 20,000 New York households.

The Facility will interconnect to the New York power grid via a new Point of Interconnection (POI) in the Town of Homer, tapping into National Grid’s Cortland to Fenner 115 kilovolt (“kV”) transmission line which runs through the project area. The Facility will be sited on approximately 600 acres of leased private and mostly cleared land.
