Solomon Energy was approached by a Catholic Diocese in upstate New York in conjunction with a retirement community to analyze the feasibility of a commercial-sized solar PPA for the community. The clients had large electricity accounts which made them ideal electric off-takers for a large solar development, but they lacked available land to develop the project on their property.

rnSolomon Energy negotiated land lease agreements with solar developers and a third party to acquire property for the solar development. Solomon also submitted the appropriate paperwork to the local utility company to make sure the project would qualify for grandfathered remote net metering.
