Constellation adds 38 MW of solar power in 2013

Constellation added 38 MW of customer-sited solar energy in 2013 in Arizona, California, Maryland, New York and the District of Columbia, bringing its total solar power generaton in operation or under construction for commercial, industrial and public sector customers to more than 164 MW.

Constellation has 58 solar power projects and 177 installations in 10 states and the District of Columbia.

In 2013, Constellation completed a 2.7 MW solar power project for Owens Corning’s thermal and acoustical insulation plant in Feura Bush, N.Y., designed to supply about 6 percent of the plant’s annual electricity needs. Financed, owned and maintained by Constellation, electricity generated by the system is purchased by Owens Corning under a 20-year power purchase agreement.

Since 2007, Constellation estimates that its customer-sited solar projects have helped avoid the release of more than 505 million pounds of carbon dioxide. That’s the equivalent emissions from about 50,000 passenger vehicles according to U.S. EPA data.

By structuring its solar projects as power purchase or solar services agreements, Constellation offers solar installations that may require no upfront capital from customers and may provide fixed power costs that are comparable to or less than projected market rates.
