Share Solar: Brooklyn Walk And Tour

What is the Shared Renewables initiative?
Last summer, Governor Cuomo announced the approval of a bold new community initiative enabling millions of New Yorkers to access clean and affordable energy for the first time. This initiative known as the Shared Renewables, allows renters, homeowners, low-income residents, schools and businesses to join together to set up shared renewable energy projects. Under the Shared Renewables initiative, buildings can install shared solar systems on their roofs and share those energy benefits with any electric customer within the same utility and NYISO zone.
What is Shared Solar?
Shared solar, also called community solar or solar gardens, is an increasingly popular option for deploying solar technology. Shared solar projects allow customers that do not have sufficient solar resource, that rent their homes, or that are otherwise unable or unwilling to install solar on their residences or commercial buildings, to buy or lease a portion of a shared solar system. The subscriber's share of the electricity generated by the project is credited to their electricity bill, as if the solar system were located at the home or business.
