Duke Energy Renewables announced it has completed the acquisition of the 24.9-MW Shoreham Solar Commons project on Long Island from Invenergy.

Shoreham Solar Commons is located in Brookhaven, New York, about 60 miles east of Manhattan, on the site of the former Tallgrass Golf Course.

It was placed into service July 1, and the Long Island Power Authority is purchasing the power under a 20-year agreement.

Mr Rob Caldwell, president, Duke Energy Renewables and Distributed Energy Technology said that “As we continue to provide affordable, renewable energy to customers across the United States, we are especially pleased our first renewables project in New York helps meet the sustainability goals and energy needs of LIPA’s customers and offers economic benefits to the local community.”

The project is expected to generate between USD 700,000 and USD 900,000 in annual tax revenue. The energy produced is estimated to displace 29,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually and create nearly 1 million megawatt-hours of clean, renewable energy over its lifetime.

Invenergy’s EVP and chief development officer Bryan Schueler said that “Repurposing the former Tallgrass Golf Course into a solar site eliminates the use of pesticides and fertilizers on the property, protecting Long Island’s fresh water aquifer. We also planted 2,000 trees on the site, providing further environmental benefits in addition to the generation of renewable energy.”
