The Horseshoe Solar project is being developed by Invenergy's six-person New York development team located in central New York, with support from engineers, construction managers and other professionals at Invenergy's headquarters in Chicago, Illinois. Marguerite Wells, an experienced wind and solar developer, is the dedicated Project Developer for Horseshoe Solar and is supported by Ryan Hicks, the team's Renewable Development Coordinator. To reach out, find Marguerite's and Ryan's contact information on the Contact tab.
Horseshoe Solar is an opportunity to boost the local economy of Livingston County and create jobs, all while generating clean, American-made energy to meet New York's growing electricity demand.
Invenergy is developing the project on private land it is leasing in the town of Caledonia, and hopes to involve solar grazing as part of the project development and operation. The synthesis of solar energy production and herd grazing is just one of the many ways we at Invenergy are hoping to innovate in our field. Once operational, Horseshoe solar will help to further-secure our nation's energy independence while benefiting its host community of Caledonia economically and our planet environmentally.

No upcoming events. Please check back soon!
Thank you to those who came with us on the recent solar grazing tours! If you weren't able to come and would like the chance to see an active solar grazing operation, please reach out to any project representative. We may schedule another similar event if there is enough interest.
Solar power is the new cash crop for farmers and landowners. Lease payments provide a steady stream of income. Horseshoe Solar will pay out between $13 and $26 million in landowner payments over the first 20 years of the project.
Invenergy plans to hire a project manager and several technicians to perform routine maintenance on the solar facility. These will be permanent positions will based at a new O&M Building to be built by Invenergy in the project area. Interviews will begin after the start of project construction.
