Written by: Leonard Parker | Solar News | 21st April


Pivot Energy, a national commercial and community solar provider announced it is now offering comprehensive community and commercial solar services across New York’s thriving solar energy market.

Pivot first entered New York in 2019, offering SunCentral, its proprietary community solar management software to New York solar developers managing community solar portfolios within the region. Since then, the company has established a strong presence in New York, hiring a local team of solar experts to lead its expansion, and has already begun contracting new projects across the state.

Pivot is currently developing and co-developing more than 94 MW of community solar in National Grid, Central Hudson and Con Edison utility territories to help New York meet its ambitious carbon reduction and solar energy goals. The community solar projects will serve low- and moderate-income households, residents and small businesses. Pivot is also developing 35 onsite commercial solar projects for local New York businesses.

“Our decision to expand services in the New York market is part of our long-term strategy for the company and is the logical next step of our 2021 growth plans,” said Tom Hunt, CEO of Pivot Energy. “New York has created a thriving solar market based on robust policy mechanisms and growing demand for more accessible clean energy. We are thrilled at the opportunity to offer our unique project development expertise and longstanding industry experience that will positively contribute to the state’s rapid energy transition and boost its clean energy economy. We welcome the opportunity to establish new partnerships with New York’s local solar stakeholders and the local communities we will serve.”
