State awards $46M for 76 solar energy projects

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The state is awarding $46 million to help finance 76 large-scale solar energy projects across New York.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday the money will go to 28 recipients for projects at businesses, factories, municipal buildings and other large energy users. The solar power projects will use a mix of public and private dollars and are expected to be on line by the end of the year.

They will total 52 megawatts.

The money comes from the state's NY-Sun initiative and is awarded on a competitive basis.
