The Gore Mountain Solar project is part of an environmental initiative undertaken by New York state and the Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) — which also oversees the Gore and Belleayre mountain resorts — to run “(their) business units with increased sustainability and efficiency,” according to a press release from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office. Syncarpha Capital is the owner of the project.
“Gore Mountain’s massive snowmaking system, lift operations, and other electrical equipment use about 13-million kilowatt hours of power and cost approximately $1 million in utility costs each year. The 14,589 solar panel system is ground-mounted and remote net metered, meaning it is built off-site and the energy produced is exported onto the electricity grid, which Gore will receive credits for on its utility bill.
NYSERDA, ORDA and Borrego Solar dedicated the project today with a ribbon cutting. The solar installation was developed and built by Borrego Solar Systems Inc. and financed by Syncarpha Capital.”
