Power Purchasing Agreement

Luthin Associates was involved in negotiating a Power Purchasing Agreement (PPA) that helped a well-established New York City university build the largest solar system installed in New York City. The 3.1-megawatt solar collection will offset a significant share of the electricity used by this university and its sister school located in the Bronx. This project is in support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s clean energy goal authorizing 50% of electricity to come from renewable energy sources by 2030.

We also reviewed their utility bills. Central to this initiative was the exploration and identification of energy grant funding, and energy incentive program opportunities as well as energy conservation measures.
