Community Solar Program

Upstate Power is proposing a guaranteed savings Community Choice Aggregation Program ("CCA Program") to the Town of Fallsburg. The Upstate Power CCA Program offers guaranteed monetary savings to residents and businesses by contracting with local, renewable community solar projects. CCA, an energy program authorized by the NY Department of Public Service ("NY DPS"), allows municipalities to source competitive energy products on behalf of its constituents through enacting a local law. In the event constituents do not want to participate, they can easily opt-out of the CCA Program at any time with no penalty. This opportunity offers guaranteed monetary savings to residential, business, and municipal electric utility customers located within participating municipalities, potentially over a 25-year period. The monetary savings are applied directly to customer utility bills. Upstate Power is an affiliate of Delaware River Solar "DRS", a leading CDG developer in New York State. DRS has developed and constructed over 120 MW of CDG projects throughout NYSEG and RGE service territories over the last 5 years and has a substantial pipeline of projects scheduled for construction through 2024. DRS Operations Company, an affiliate of DRS, currently manages over 7,000 subscribers on operating community solar projects; performing customer acquisition, utility allocations, utility management, customer service, and regulatory management. DRS Operations Company is headquartered in Callicoon, NY.
