Solar energy systems have been installed at three New York State Department of Transportation locations in Western New York. 

The ground-mounted solar panels will supply the buildings with clean energy, expected to produce 80 percent of each facility’s energy needs. 

The solar energy systems were installed at the following locations: 

  • Interstate 290/990 Pump Station, Erie County
  • Sherman Maintenance Sub-Residency, Chautauqua County
  • Interstate 86 Rest Area, Bemus Point, Chautauqua County

The solar installation was completed by CIR Electrical Construction Corp. of Buffalo in Erie County, and was administered through a partnership between NYSDOT and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), which will be providing incentives towards the solar panel installation costs through the NY-Sun program.
