EarthKind Bridge solar project breaks ground

EarthKind Energy is proud to be the clean energy consultant to the New York State Bridge Authority (NYSBA), who broke ground on a 486KW solar system and had their 1,350 PV panels delivered this week.

EarthKind conducted the utility cost analysis, identified the Kingston-Rhinecliff bridge site, provided the solar project sizing, prepared the bid documentation, recommended the installation award, negotiated the Power Purchase Agreement that locked in a price of 10 cents per kwh for 20 years,  coordinated the utility inter-connection application, and is overseeing the project installation and commissioning.

“The Bridge Authority’s commitment and actions to meet Governor Cuomo’s clean energy goals are unparalleled”, said Ron Kamen, CEO of EarthKind Energy.  “The combined lighting efficiency gains and solar energy generation makes the Bridge Authority the first New York State government entity to effectively meet the Governor’s target.  It’s this type of true leadership that will provide stable, affordable electricity prices; save taxpayers money; and create a healthier and more sustainable future for all of us.”
