Facility is one of the largest solar projects in New York state, and the first in the state for Duke Energy Renewables and Distributed Energy Technology.
Shoreham Solar Commons is located about 60 miles east of Manhattan, on the site of the former Tallgrass Golf Course. It was placed into service July 1, 2018. The integration of the solar project into the Long Island Electric System provides clean energy to ratepayers and helps Long Island reduce its dependency on fossil fuels. The Long Island Power Authority is purchasing the power under a 20-year agreement, which assists New York state in the achievement of 50 percent renewable energy by 2030.
