WHITE PLAINS, NY, September 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Source Renewables, a vertically integrated renewable energy company focused on community development of solar and clean energy in New York State, announced today hui have received rezoning approval to develop two community solar projects on the Marilla Street landfill in South Buffalo that will provide incredible benefits to the region, including the creation of new jobs, the pursuit of the renewable energy goals of the State, providing the city with tax revenue and generating savings for local residents of Buffalo.

“Our company’s mission is to bring green energy to communities across New York State. We are extremely pleased to see that the Marilla Street landfill site will now house a clean solar energy community development with the zoning change approval received today. This initiative is not only good for the environment, but will also save Buffalo residents on solar energy costs. It’s a win-win situation, ”said Andrew Day, Partner at Source Renewables.

Source Renewables intends to begin construction in 2022 of the community solar panels which will consist of two 5 MW (megawatt) solar panels that will produce enough electricity to power the equivalent of more than 2,500 households per year.

The Marilla Street landfill, which is monitored by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), was used as a disposal area by the former Republic Steel Company for waste from the steelmaking operations. These community solar projects represent a significant opportunity to revitalize underutilized properties to generate green electricity, jobs, increase tax revenues, and save local residents money on their electricity bills.
