IP becomes anchor members of community solar project

International Paper‘s Auburn, ME and Rochester, NY box plants will become anchor members of community solar projects being developed by Novel Energy Solutions and PureSky Energy in Maine and New York.

This program allows subscribers to receive credits on their utility bill from a shared solar installation. As an anchor member responsible for a portion of the project capacity, IP will help ensure that this community-scale solar project has a financial basis to support the project’s success.

“Partnerships like this allow us to play an important role in accelerating the energy transition, expanding renewable energy access through creative models, and reducing overall emissions from electricity consumption over time,” said the company in a statement.
