New York is a leader in the clean energy transition with some of the most ambitious renewable targets in the nation to reach 70% renewables by 2030. With more than two decades of experience working in the state, we have helped New York lead the adoption of solar, solar-plus-storage, and standalone storage at the community and utility-scale.
From Upstate to Downstate and everywhere in between, we utilize our experience and in-house expertise to foster partnerships with customers and co-create solutions to responsibly meet the energy and economic needs of communities across the state. Whether partnering with communities, utility customers, or Fortune 500 companies, we make achieving New York's clean energy targets beneficial for everyone.

Together with Anheuser-Busch
Anheuser-Busch is proud to be a leading contributor to New York’s economy—and a committed community partner.
The solar installation provides an additional 3 million kilowatt-hours back to the distribution grid annually, providing enough solar electricity to brew more than 3 million cases of beverages a year.
"New York is making nation-leading investments in renewable energy resources that support our rapidly growing clean energy economy and provide businesses and residents with cleaner, more cost-effective energy. This project exemplifies our efforts to support solar projects across the state that deliver meaningful environmental benefits, while spurring economic growth that will serve New Yorkers for generations to come." - New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
– 2.76 MWdc
- Generates enough renewable energy annually to produce 3.6 million cases of beer
- Supports Anheuser-Busch in achieving their ambitious goal of using 100% renewable energy by 2025
We present landowners with new opportunities to capitalize on the value of their land while retaining ownership throughout the project life cycle. For many, this is a welcome complement to current land use and an opportunity to diversify their land investment while hedging against volatile commodity prices. For others, our projects offer an income stream and land-use option where none otherwise existed.
Our teams and landowners work together, in partnership, from the beginning stages of site discussions, through permitting, construction, and operation. The landowner relationship with AES begins early, is built on trust and open communication, and ensures the partnership is beneficial for everyone.
