stral Power, Inc. announced a new community partnership with the Cancer Resource Center (CRC) of the Finger Lakes, where Astral Power will help supply local, clean, and renewable energy to this local organization dedicated to create and sustain a community of support for

people affected by cancer.

“We are proud to be able to support the CRC’s mission, as it is very honorable one. Cancer is a deeply impactful disease not only for the individual affected, but also their family and friends.” says Thom Smith, President at Astral Power. “Partnering with CRC will help stretch and increase donation dollars to help provide the resources and comfort that these individuals need.”

 

Community solar allows anyone — from homeowners or renters to non-profit organizations — in the utility’s service area to subscribe to a share of the farm and receive energy credits that reduce their electric bill. Because there is no fee to enroll and no long-term contract, subscribers can take advantage of the program with no risk. Astral Power currently provides access to multiple solar farms in the New York state, with each farm able to produce power for more than 300 households.

“We are thrilled that community members have responded by coming on board with solar to make our environment cleaner, while at the same time helping CRC continue to provide support services free of charge so that no one faces cancer alone.  It’s been easy to enroll and Astral Power has been great to work with.  We look forward to a strong ongoing partnership”, says Marilee Murphy, CRC Executive Director.

stral Power, Inc. today announced a new subscriber partnership with Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC), formalized by both parties on May 19th, 2019. RMSC, a museum dedicated to enriching the community’s understanding of science, technology and their

impact, will retain Astral Power to provide solar power to its Science Museum, Strasenburgh Planetarium and Cumming Nature Center.

“We believe that clean energy should be available to everyone, regardless of location, finances or any other variable,” says Thom Smith, President at Astral Power. “For an organization such as the Rochester Museum & Science Center, community solar aligns well with its commitment to the environment and a desire to make its dollars stretch further. We look forward to working with Hillary Olson and her team at the museum to promote Community Solar throughout Rochester.”

 

Astral Power works with different communities and organizations to provide them with clean local energy through Community Solar. Once RMSC agreed to be a partner subscriber with Astral Power, Astral Power handled the rest, which included reserving a share of a local solar farm in Spencerport, New York, and working with RMSC’s electric provider to ensure a seamless transition. There were no upfront costs, nothing to install and no long-term contracts needed. In addition to reducing RMSC’s carbon footprint and enabling RMSC to support local economic development, this partnership is expected to save RMSC an estimated $7,500 per year.
