Constellation, a subsidiary of Chicago-based power giant Exelon Corp., will finance, construct, own and maintain the nine-acre installation and will sell the power generated to Owens Corning under a 20-year PPA.
The facility, part funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), is expected to generate 3.3 million kWh per year, around 6% of the thermal and acoustic installation equipment factory's energy needs, from 9,000 ground-mounted panels.
The installation is part of New York governor Andrew Cuomo's New York Sun initiative, announced in March, under which the governor pledged to fund an additional 52 MW of new photovoltaic capacity for the state.
