Generate, a solar developer and project owner, announced that it has put the first six of up to 23 New York State community solar projects into service under a multi-year facility with Starbucks Coffee Company. The 90-MW portfolio of projects is expected to supply solar energy for local Starbucks stores and up to 24,000 households, small businesses, nonprofits, churches, universities and stores in multiple geographies, including those designated as under-served communities. In addition to clean energy, program participants will receive a discount to their current electricity rates under New York State’s Community Distributed Generation program, making clean energy access more affordable.
