California Mandatory Rooftop Solar Rule Amended (Ind. Report)
California Rooftop Solar
Date: 2020-02-26
Following up on our Dec. 18, 2019 coverage, the California Energy Commission (CEC) reports it has approved a proposal to amend its mandatory new building rooftop solar program to allow some new Sacramento housing developments to use offsite "community" solar in place of individual building rooftop solar installations.

The new solar rules were approved by the legislature and former California Governor Jerry Brown in 2018, making California the first state to mandate solar. The California Energy Commission (CEC) estimates the new mandates will add about $9,500 to the price of an average house while saving roughly $19,000 in reduced energy bills over 30 years.

OYA Solar, NY Counties Hammering Out PILOT Tax Deal (Ind Report)
OYA Solar
Date: 2019-06-28
Toronto-based energy company OYA Solar Inc. is reporting plans to construct a 20-MW solar farm in the towns of Clayton and Orleans in Jefferson County, New York. The project, which would be divided into four separate 5-MW units collectively covering 170-acres, would generate sufficient energy for approximately 30,000 area homes.

As an incentive to the project, the townships are ironing out details of a "payment in lieu of taxes" {PILOT) tax deal with the Jefferson County Industrial Development Agency (JCIDA). Under such an agreement OYA would make payments to the communities that would be less than the property taxes it would normally pay. If OYA's agreement is approved, the company could break ground on the project immediately and the solar farm could be completed and online within a year.
