ReWire and PowerMarket team up to provide cost savings through renewable energy across BBL’s Managed Real Estate Portfolio.

ReWire Group is excited to announce a new community solar project which is a testament to our commitment to sustainable energy solutions and our expertise in navigating the complexities of renewable energy markets.

The beneficiary for this project is BBL Management Group (“BBL”), an Albany-based company that has subscribed a portion of their portfolio to community solar as a commercial (Anchor Tenant) and Mass Market subscriber for their managed residential properties. This strategic move will result in 10% savings on their entire electric bill for these properties. BBL’s decision to subscribe to community solar reflects their desire for a straightforward process to access renewable energy while simultaneously reducing operational expenses.

Located in the North Country in the town of Oswegatchie, NY, this 6.7-megawatt community solar project will significantly reduce energy costs for both the company and residents in the Capital and Central NY regions. The community solar project, completed in the spring of 2023, consists of more than 16,000 panels, and generates approximately 8 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean power annually. This is enough to power over 1,500 homes and reduces carbon emissions by nearly 5,600 metric tons annually, equivalent to taking over 1,100 cars off the road.

PowerMarket, ReWire’s solar utility provider partner, worked closely with our team to broker this project. PowerMarket is a provider of community solar services, dedicated to making renewable energy accessible to all. The solar developer for this project is CleanCapital, a leading clean energy investment platform that owns and operates renewable energy projects across the U.S.

This project is made possible by the progressive renewable energy legislation in New York State, which encourages anchor tenants to subscribe to community solar. The benefits of this legislation include consolidated billing and looser credit requirements, making renewable energy more accessible to a wider range of businesses and individuals. It will support New York’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) goal to install six gigawatts of distributed solar by 2025 and accelerate progress toward ten gigawatts by 2030.

BBL’s owned and managed commercial properties will utilize 40 percent of the clean energy generated by the solar project, leaving 60 percent available for residential subscribers in the company’s properties. These subscribers can expect to see credits on their electricity bill, resulting in an estimated 10 percent annual savings.

We are proud to be part of this significant step towards a sustainable future and look forward to continuing our work in the renewable energy sector.
