A Maryland solar energy company has acquired six community solar projects in New York.

Standard Solar Inc., of Rockville, plans to build 38 megawatts of solar projects in New York through the acquisition of six projects from US Light Energy, the company announced Wednesday.

The community solar projects, which let paying subscribers use solar energy without having to bear the cost of materials, installation and maintenance, will be built on about 180 acres of land, according to Standard Solar.

The six project sites are in the towns of Hunter, Clifton Park, Turin, Croghan and Denmark, and will use about 111,765 solar panels, generating roughly 46.725 gigawatt hours of electricity.
