The 2.5 MW Clarkson Solar project is on land owned by Clarkson University. The site is located adjacent to a municipal airport, which required a detailed glare analysis to be performed.

Clarkson University purchased the power produced by the facility through a long-term, fixed-rate contract which will act as a hedge to future rising energy costs. Clarkson Solar has been online since late 2014.
