Onyx Completes 30MW of 80MW+ Solar Pipeline for US Military
Onyx and Corvias established a strategic partnership in 2015 with the goal of providing clean energy to military communities.
Onyx, through its joint venture with Corvias, has completed 30MW+ of solar assets spanning four separate military bases across the U.S. to date.
Onyx developed and constructed the portfolio, comprised of 3,507 rooftops and 2 ground mounts.
The portfolio is operated and maintained by Onyx's vertically-integrated asset management arm, Onyx Asset Services Group.
Onyx and Corvias are currently developing an additional 50MW+ of military installations in the partnership's 2023 pipeline.
- Fort Riley: Rooftop Systems on 1,261 homes totaling 10.5MW
- Edwards Air Force Base: Rooftop systems on 386 homes totaling 3.8MW
- Forte Meade: Rooftop systems on 1,860 homes totaling 10MW
- APG: Two ground mount systems totaling 5.7MW
First multi-family community in New York state to be awarded LEED Platinum certification
As a direct result of Onyx’s efforts, StuyTown and Peter Cooper Village became the first multi-family communities in New York state to be awarded LEED Platinum certification, the highest level of green building certification.
The StuyTown and Peter Cooper Village project also benefits New York City as a whole. All energy generated by the StuyTown panels is collected and distributed in the power grid by the local utility, Consolidated Edison (Con Edison). This extra solar energy will help reduce outages by taking pressure off the grid when demand for electricity is peaking on hot summer days.
“Through our Sunstone Energy Development joint venture, Corvias is proud to partner with Onyx Renewables to provide value-added, sustainable, and resilient energy solutions to military communities, in support of the U.S. Army’s energy resiliency goals, and to enhance the quality of life for our service members and their families.”
Today, Fort Riley is the largest non-utility owned solar PV system in Kansas.
