We prefer our energy the way we prefer our parks: green!

By going green and being a part of the solar community, you get to further the mission of the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy (BOPC). The BOPC works hard to preserve our Olmsted Parks and Parkways for current and future generations. Your donations help leave Western New York better off than we found it.

Community Solar creates high-paying jobs and tax revenue for local communities.

The projects are often located on former state or federally owned land that currently produces no tax revenue. The development of the community solar project means tax revenue will be generated for local communities.
