BW Solar announces sale of 12 New York Community Solar Projects to Catalyze

April 23, 2024

BW Solar today announced the sale of 12 New York community solar projects with a combined capacity of 76.7 MW to Catalyze, a clean energy transition company that finances, builds, owns and operates solar and battery storage systems.

The transaction includes a portfolio of 6 ~38.2 MW pre-construction projects and another group of 6 ~ 38.5 MW projects in early-stage of development, located in upstate New York. The group of notice-to-proceed ready (NTP-ready) projects are targeted for commercial operation in 2024 and 2025.

Catalyze will leverage its experience in executing projects in New York while demonstrating its commitment to innovative practices in solar development to bring these projects to fruition. For example, one project, slated for construction this summer, will incorporate an all-terrain tracker designed to navigate the challenging features of a steep, undulating hill. This innovative approach mitigates the need for extensive site grading, thereby reducing construction costs and environmental disruption.

“BW Solar is committed to the energy transition by originating and developing high-quality renewable energy projects, and this transaction is testament to our execution expertise. We were pleased to work with Catalyze in a seamless transaction process for the acquisition and look forward to seeing the projects come to fruition,” said Tai Nguyen, CEO, BW Solar.

“We appreciate the BW Solar team’s collaboration in this transaction process, helping ensure we meet the increasing demand for renewable electricity in New York,” said Jared Haines, CEO of Catalyze. “We look forward to deploying our operational expertise to bring these projects online within the next two years, increasing the adoption of solar in the state and engaging local communities in the process.”
