Otsego County is currently in the process of developing a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Solar City to build a 2.3 Mega Watt remote solar array that will provide net metering to offset electricity cost to all county owned and county leased facilities.
The Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) allows Otsego County to implement on-site renewable energy projects with no upfront capital costs. Solar City will install the solar array on county owned or leased property. Solar City is able to fully leverage government incentives and depreciation unavailable to the County. In exchange, the County agrees to purchase the power generated by the system.
