Aggreko’s Energy Transition Solutions division acquired a portfolio of nine community solar projects in the state of New York.
The ground-mounted installations will total approximately 59 MW of generating capacity Aggreko ETS also successfully connected the first of the nine projects to the grid, a 5.9 MWdc project in the town of Vernon, 40 miles east of Syracuse.
