Colorado developer plans $5.5m solar project in Philadelphia

A Colorado developer plans to build a $5.5 million solar project on Philadelphia farmland to sell power to Utica and Watertown companies, with New York Air Brake and Renzi Foodservice as potential clients.

The tentative project has been in the works since the early summer but came to light only last week, when grant funding was announced for the New York State Energy and Development Authority’s NY-Sun incentive program. Solar Power Financial of Boulder, Colo., was tentatively awarded funding to build a 4 megawatt solar array in the town of Philadelphia, where it has an option to lease 20 acres from a private landowner.

The proposal was among 10 such projects planned in central and northern New York by the developer, which could collectively be awarded $11 million; 20 percent of each project would be funded. To officially be awarded funding, the developer will have to finalize power purchasing agreements with companies by January.

Companies would be supplied power using “remote net metering,” in which electricity produced by the solar array would be fed into the grid. Customers would save 10 percent to 15 percent on electricity, according to Todd Stewart, a partner in Solar Power Financial.

Along with pursuing local manufacturers, the developer said Wednesday it has secured non-binding commitments from Conmed Corp., a Utica medical technology company, and St. Elizabeth Medical Center.

SPECULATIVE INFORMATION?

Board members of the Jefferson County Local Development Corp. weren’t previously made aware of the solar proposal, although agency CEO Donald C. Alexander knew about it. Mr. Alexander said the developer told him about the project this summer, but he chose not to tell the board because he considered the information too speculative. He said he provided the developer contact information for local companies, including New York Air Brake and Renzi Foodservice.

News about the solar project came as Rochester energy consultant Entecco LLC was preparing a $4 million NYSERDA grant application for a renewable energy project planned by the local development agency. The project would serve three manufacturers at the City Center Industrial Park: Current Applications, Roth Industries and Renzi Foodservice. A solar array is planned as a component of that project, which calls for a mix of renewable energy sources to be launched, such as biomass and geothermal.

“The application process for the grant was well underway by the time I heard about this other project, so timing had something to do with it,” Mr. Alexander said Wednesday about his decision to withhold information about the solar project. “It was very speculative when I first heard about it, and we had already embarked on” the project with Entecco, “and worked on it for several months.”

He continued, “There was certainly no intent to not disclose this information by any stretch,” he said, adding that speculative projects “have to be fleshed out before we take them to the board.”

After learning about the solar project from a reporter Wednesday, JCLDC board member Scott A. Gray said he was disturbed that Mr. Alexander kept it from the board because he deemed it speculative. Mr. Gray said Entecco’s proposal also could be considered “somewhat speculative.”

“A lot of what we delve into and discuss is speculative to a certain extent, so I don’t see that as a reason not to bring it to the board,” said Mr. Gray, who is also a Jefferson County legislator. “Number two, if there was state funding or grants involved, that would probably be another reason it should be brought to the board. If it’s getting the state’s attention, it’s certainly worthy of ours.”

Board member Donald L. DiMonda, by contrast, said he supported Mr. Alexander’s decision after learning about the circumstances. “I trust Don’s judgment to make us aware of things we are interested in in a timely fashion,” he said.

Mr. Alexander said he views the tentative solar project as a “companion piece” to the Entecco proposal that would give manufacturers another way to reduce energy costs. Renzi Foodservice, for example, might decide to participate in both initiatives, he said.

“Entecco is building a car, and (the other) group is supplying tires,” he said. “One of the mechanisms that we would be able to provide through Entecco’s efforts is remote net metering. They’re providing tires, which every car needs, but the car has other components.”

Entecco President John Bay declined to comment Wednesday about Solar Power Financial’s project.

OUT-OF-STATE DEVELOPERS LURED

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced last week that the latest pool of $94 million awarded to solar developers is expected to increase the state’s solar capacity by more than 214 megawatts — a 68 percent increase from the end of 2013. Projects are planned at 142 sites statewide, leveraging private investment of more than $375 million.

New incentives for developers rolled out by the state attracted Solar Power Financial — along with several other out-of-state companies — to do business here by applying for grant funding, Mr. Stewart said Wednesday. Launched in 2008, the small Colorado firm has led projects in markets across the country and has an office in the Bronx, Mr. Stewart said. Like other solar developers, the firm partners with the some of the country’s largest renewable-energy investors.

For the latest round of projects proposed in New York, Mr. Stewart said, the firm will be backed financially by NextEra Energy Inc., a Florida clean-energy company with revenues of about $15 billion.

“We’re a small firm, but we partner with some of the largest companies for financing,” he said. “In this case, NextEra Energy will be the long-term owner of solar assets and hold onto them for 20 years. The company sells (solar) benefits to customers under power purchase agreements.”

Mr. Stewart said that his firm was attracted to farmland in the town of Philadelphia because it is situated inside a strategic area designated by National Grid where an incentive for solar projects is offered by NYSERDA. A total of 25 percent of project costs are reimbursed to developers leading projects in such strategic areas. In the Philadelphia project’s case, “it means about $300,000 in incentive money,” he said. He said it is not clear why National Grid identified Philadelphia as a strategic location.

Mr. Stewart said he is confident that projects planned by the developer will be awarded funding by NYSERDA. But that will depend on whether companies which have expressed interest in purchasing power follow through. NYSERDA won’t award funding unless the developer secures commitments from companies that total 20 megawatts, which would be spread across the 10 projects Solar Power Financial has planned.

“We have customers lined up for all of it,” he said. “There’s risk in it, but I definitely believe it’s going to be a reality.”

In Jefferson County, Mr. Stewart said he is confident that New York Air Brake and Renzi Foodservice will commit to the project. Their interest in the project could not be immediately confirmed Wednesday night.

“My preference as a developer would be to do this with someone locally, and New York Air Brake is a great company,” he said. “They haven’t signed a non-binding agreement, but they have a great advocate there that is interested in making that happen.”

The first Philadelphia-bound flight takes off from Watertown International Airport this afternoon.

And though the switch to the Philadelphia destination from Chicago has caused some controversy, Jefferson County officials said they are optimistic about the county-owned airport’s future.

“There are pluses and minuses,” said Jefferson County Legislator Philip N. Reed, R-Fishers Landing. “I think the pluses will outweigh the minuses in the end.” [Read more…]
