In 2015, Borrego Solar installed 10.4 megawatts of solar for New York commercial and public sector energy users, making it the largest installer in the state
Borrego Solar Systems Inc., a leading developer, designer, installer and O&M provider of commercial solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, is proud to announce that in its first few years of entering the New York solar market it has secured the leading market share among commercial installers, according to Greentech Media Research’s (GTM) U.S. PV Leaderboard report1. GTM’s report also identified Borrego Solar as the third largest commercial installer nationwide with 5.5 percent of the segment’s total market share.
Over the course of 2015, GTM reported Borrego Solar completed 10.4 megawatts (MW) of solar for New York businesses and public sector customers—nearly twice the second leading installer. In addition to our commercial sector installations, Borrego Solar also has completed or is currently building 23 MW of utility-scale installations on Long Island. The company has continued to grow its New York team since entering the market to better serve customers and expand operations.
In 2015, Borrego Solar’s completed projects in New York include:
- Houghton College—2.6 MW on the college’s campus
- Tompkins Cortland Community College—2.5 MW on the college’s campus
- Oneida County—5 MW across two projects
Borrego Solar additionally has 14 MW under construction, including 8 MW for the Olympic Regional Development Authority for Gore Mountain and Whiteface Mountain ski resorts; and a 2.9 MW array for Ithaca College.
For 2015, New York was ranked2 fifth nationally in terms of installed solar capacity and fourth largest for solar jobs. In the past several years, New York’s lawmakers and regulators have rolled out incentive programs and policies that put solar within reach for nearly any entity. Specifically, the New York Public Service Commission announced a 10-year $1 billion commitment to developing a self-sustaining solar market in the state, which will result in 3,000 MW of capacity by 2022.
