DSD Acquires Two-Project, 10 MW Community Solar Portfolio in Lenox, NY

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. – January 5, 2021 – Distributed Solar Development (DSD) has acquired a two-project, 10 MW community solar portfolio in Lenox, New York.

“This acquisition materially increases DSD’s New York Community Solar portfolio, which the company will continue to expand in 2021,” says Jon Morton, Vice President of Acquisitions at DSD.

“When construction is complete, members of the community will benefit from clean, renewable energy and a smaller energy bill.”

Both commercial solar installation projects are ground-mounted and were purchased 75% complete from a mid-stage development partner. DSD will oversee project management through the rest of construction, which is being done by High Peaks Solar of Wynantskill, N.Y. The portfolio is projected to be complete by the end of January.

Kevin Bailey, CEO of High Peaks Solar, says, “Our company would like to thank all of the hard-working men and women who saw this project become a success during a difficult year. This project is the largest we have completed to date.”

“High Peaks Solar is an experienced contractor in the PV industry and was the original greenfield developer for this portfolio,” says DSD Senior Project Manager Derrik Fillippo, who has been working with High Peaks on finishing the projects. “When construction is complete, members of the community will benefit from clean, renewable energy and a smaller energy bill.”

Sixty percent of the solar energy produced will benefit small commercial and residential customers in and around Lenox, while the other 40% will be harnessed by a large anchor offtaker. Both clean energy solar projects are already 100% subscribed, with Blue Wave Solar managing subscriptions.
