“The team has worked relentlessly to progress the growth of our New York solar portfolio since 2017,” said Stephane Desdunes, Senior Director of Development, Northeast Region, EDF Renewables. We are happy with the fact that we have been granted 1,313 MW of procurements in 2020 and 2021, totaling 1,483 MW since 2018. With more than 1,000 MW of solar and storage projects remaining in the pipeline, we are looking forward to collaborating with NYSERDA and New York State to meet the 70% by 2030 goal and provide clean energy to New Yorkers.”

“Throughout the development, building, and operational phases, the region will benefit from procurement and job possibilities. During peak construction, the projects will generate about 1,290 prevailing wage and union construction jobs in upstate New York, as well as millions of dollars in revenue for the Counties, Towns, and School Districts during the project’s operational life.”

EDF Renewables previously announced the commissioning of four new solar farms in Israel with a combined capacity of 54 MW. It also adds to the EDF Group’s Cap 2030 goal, which seeks to double the company’s net renewable energy capacity between 2015 and 2030, from 28 GW to 60 GW.

The firm’s current portfolio is wind heavy, with solar constituting 26% of the 13.8 GW gross portfolio. 5.2 GW of this is in North America.
