Nautilus Solar Energy® Partners with EnergyMark to Democratize Access to Community Solar for Local Commercial Subscribers in New York
Summit, NJ (August 30, 2023) - Nautilus Solar Energy, a leading pioneer in the solar energy industry, has announced its strategic partnership with EnergyMark, a reputed Williamsville, NY -based energy supplier and solar subscription manager. The partnership aims to bridge the gap for local small to mid-size commercial businesses that have historically been left out of the community solar revolution.
A significant issue that many businesses face is the inaccessibility to community solar credits, leading to missed opportunities in guaranteed savings on energy costs. Traditionally, these businesses have been sidelined due to credit rating requirements and long-term commitments, putting the benefits of community solar out of reach for many.
"This partnership with EnergyMark is about more than energy; it's about equity for every business, big or small," said Daniel Bozer, Community Solar Business Development Manager for Nautilus. "Our collaboration has been a rewarding journey, especially with my fellow Buffalonians. Together, we're ensuring local businesses in the National Grid utility easily access clean energy, strengthening both the power grid and NY economies."
16 MW across seven projects in Western and Central New York are allocated for local commercial companies, emphasizing a commitment to sustainable energy. This opportunity empowers area businesses to notably reduce energy costs and their carbon footprint, offsetting 15,500 metric tons of CO2 emissions—equivalent to taking 3,500 cars off the road for a year. Nautilus is the long-term owner of the community solar projects and is responsible for the energy production, maintaining its long-term performance, and managing customer subscriptions. EnergyMark will manage subscriber acquisition and administer the solar credits generated from the seven projects.
“This innovative partnership will grant greater access to the benefits of community solar," said Luke Marchiori, Executive Vice President for EnergyMark. “Our Agreement with Nautilus allows us to provide significant savings to our customers and continue our exponential growth in New York’s rapidly expanding renewable generation space.”
Community solar is one of the fastest growing sectors of the New York clean energy industry, providing locally produced, affordable clean energy to everyone. Community solar not only provides cost savings but also aids in grid reliability and resilience, creates local jobs and economic development for the local community, and boosts infrastructure development, paving the way for a cleaner, more sustainable future.
The Empire State has become Nautilus’s largest community solar market, with approximately 200MW in development and operation.
