Community Solar

Since 2014, the city's renewable solar energy has increased over sixfold. NYC is working toward the goal of installing 1 gigawatt of solar capacity citywide by 2030, enough to power 250,000 homes.

Community solar provides broad access to solar energy by allowing subscribers to receive credit for energy produced by a solar array, even if that array is owned by another party. The City is currently developing community shared solar projects at NYCHA and EDC to serve thousands of low-income New Yorkers.

City, State, and Federal incentives are available for solar, as is PACE financing.
