Corning announces construction of solar array at New York facility
Corning announced it is building a solar array at its Corning Life Sciences, or CLS, facility in Oneonta, and the company has entered into a solar-power purchase agreement to further support its commitment to clean energy. The array will be Corning's first solar project in New York state. The ground-mounted solar array will be constructed by Ontario, New York-based company GreenSpark Solar and is expected to be completed in the summer. Corning has entered into the power purchase agreement with Kendall Sustainable Infrastructure, which will own the solar array. The electricity generated will go directly into the New York State Electric and Gas grid and be distributed to consumers. The solar array will produce more clean energy for consumers, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the community.
