​PROJECT SUMMARY

​Greenstar Cooperative market is a growing food coop in Ithaca,NY. With 3 locations serving everything from bulk to prepared foods, their energy demands raised substantially over the the past 5 years.

Greenstar came to Renovus hoping to realize a new dream, offsetting their energy cost with a green, offsite solar array that could supply energy to their largest production and packaging location on the west end of Ithaca. Renovus designed, permitted and built their custom project in 2016, helping to make Greenstar the first coop in the United States to be powered by a community solar farm.

Now, in 2018 Greenstar is preparing to expand to a new , larger facility on the North End of Ithaca,NY.  Due to the off-site location of thier array, they can net meter their power to their new building, and enjoy all the benefits of their solar investment at their new location. ​
