Cypress Creek Acquires 100 MW New York Solar Project from Carson Power

Cypress Creek Renewables purchased a 100-MW transmission project from Carson Power for its New York Independent System Operators’ (NYISO), development portfolio. The project is located near Rochester, N.Y. and is currently in the early stages. It is expected to go into service in 2026. 

Carson Power will co-develop the project and support entitlement and community engagement. Cypress Creek will be in charge of principal development, offtake procurement, financing, and financing. 

Cypress Creek has created more than 11GW of storage and solar projects nationally and has a 15GW solar storage pipeline. Cypress Creek in New York has put over 35 solar energy projects and energy storage into operation. It is currently developing 55 additional distributed generation, utility-scale, and standalone energy storage projects throughout the state. Recently, Cypress Creek received a Renewable Energy Certificate (NYSERDA) from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority for its 130 MW Bear Ridge project in Western New York.  

“We are incredibly excited to begin our partnership with Carson Power,” says Marisa Scavo, director of development for Cypress Creek. “Over the past seven years, we have been committed to powering the clean energy transition in New York State and are looking forward to expanding how we develop and advance solar and energy storage. With this project we will commence a, hopefully long, relationship providing development capital to Carson Power as their business grows and our commitment to New York strengthens.”

“We are thrilled to kick-off co-development of this 100 MW solar project in New York with a partner like Cypress Creek,” adds Emilie Flanagan, CEO of Carson Power. “Their deep expertise in utility-scale development, financing, ownership and operations in New York will be instrumental to bringing this asset to NTP. We are excited to start the foundation of what we believe will be a great development partnership with Cypress Creek to continue supporting the clean energy transition of the State of New York.”
