Our staff has worked through the filing process for both State and Federal clean energy incentives through the following programs: U.S. Dept. of Treasury 1603 Cash Grant, NYSERDA PON2112 & MW-Block Commercial Industrial Program, NJ Clean Energy Program, MA , CT VNM Program, MassCEC Program.
NEC Code compliance, value engineering, & construction risk-mitigation all come together to form our electrical system design principles. We work with multiple industry leading engineering firms to deliver detail oriented drawings that deliver high performing systems at a lower cost.
Electrical Design & Production Analysis
Active Solar partners with an extensive network of engineering & design firms to develop the site & system in its entirety. Active has developed relationships with a number of various civil, environmental, & electrical engineers across the country, each with their own strengths & areas of expertise.
Site Design & Engineering Studys
We have site development & environmental permitting experience with a wide range of local, county, state, & federal AHJ’s including: Army Corps of Engineers, NYS EPA, MA DEP, CT DEEP, NJ DEP, NJ County Soil Districts, NJ DOT.
Permitting & Regulatory Approvals
Our preconstruction planning methodology incorporates feasibility studies, schematic designs, design development and a final project build plan before shovels hit the ground. Communication and transparency are a cornerstone to Active Solar’s project management process.
Our engineering team considers the long term operating and maintenance needs of our solar PV systems at the very core of the design process. We believe that strict attention to detail and testing during the upfront installation will add years to the total life cycle of the system

Active Solar Development, LLC was founded by Frank McCleneghen in 2012, with the original goal of designing, manufacturing and installing some of the largest and most efficient solar thermal systems in use today. After continued success in large scale solar thermal development across the world, Active Solar transitioned their expertise to large commercial and small utility scale solar PV development & construction. With the recent addition of strategically acquired solar industry professionals, the Active team has separated itself as the premier solar PV & solar thermal developer in NYS. Over 15 years of combined experience in solar PV, our team has continuously brought unmatched efficiency and professionalism to clients which include Local, State, & Federal Government Authorities, School Districts, Universities, and Industries across the country. As a group, we have taken lead management roles in the financing, development, or construction of over 250 solar projects, totaling 100+ MWs of installed capacity.
