The 2023 National Human Resource Association Rising Star Award honors the folks working to elevate and strengthen their organizations through innovative ideas that make a positive impact within the HR, DEI, and local communities in which they live. GreenSpark Solar is proud to announce that our People Department Director, Ciera Caldwell, was named to this list of HR professionals in Rochester.
In 2019, GreenSpark Solar installed a solar array on a capped landfill in the Village of Brockport. This 646 kW solar array offsets the electricity needs of multiple buildings, including Seymour Library, three fire stations, the visitor center, the Department of Public Works, municipal offices, the police station, and streetlights.
At GreenSpark Solar, we only use the most experienced, efficient local partners for our projects. A great example is our partnership with Boulter Industrial Contractors on a 6.4 MW solar project owned by Catalyze and installed in Geneseo, New York.
With many solar companies in our local market, you may wonder how to choose the right company for you and your home. With a quality solar array lasting from 25-35 years, choosing the right company and the best equipment is a critical decision. It seems daunting.
Now is your chance to save big by switching to solar with GreenSpark! We offer one of the most cost-effective and eco-friendly energy options for your home. By switching to solar, not only will you be saving money on your energy bills, but you will also be reducing your carbon footprint and protecting your household from utility rate increases.
GreenSpark Solar (GreenSpark) and CVE North America (CVE) have broken ground on a portfolio of five community solar projects totaling over 26 megawatts (MW) in New York State. CVE North America, headquartered in New York City and a subsidiary of the France-based CVE Group, is focused on developing, building, and operating community solar plants across the US. GreenSpark has designed, engineered, and built over 200 MW of renewable energy projects.
This month, RG&E, NYSEG and The Department of Public Service proposed rate hikes that will heavily affect customers. The proposed three-year plan will include a double-digit rate increase for gas and electricity in RG&E and NYSEG regions.
Solar is now powering our local area's schools, libraries, community centers, office buildings, municipalities, and more. New York State recognizes the importance of renewable energy and recently passed the 2023-2024 budget, which included significant climate provisions.
The NYS 2023-2024 budget recently passed with some climate provisions! A major one is the All Electric Buildings Act, which requires new construction buildings to be fully electric starting 2026 for smaller buildings and 2029 for larger ones.
As more homeowners and businesses evaluate going solar in light of Governor Hochul’s ambitious NYS climate goals, only some have the opportunity to install panels on their property. How can we collectively meet these goals when not all corporations or property owners have the infrastructure to switch to solar? This is where solar land hosting plays an important role to help benefit our communities.
