The New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) this week announced that the largest Community Solar project in New York City is complete and operational. Located in Brooklyn, nearly 200 households and businesses are benefitting from the 1.2-megawatt solar array.

The solar array was developed by Daroga Solar. The project is fully subscribed with 196 total customers – 70 percent residential customers, 20 percent small commercial customers, and 10 percent low- to moderate-income customers.

NYSERDA through the NY-Sun program initiative provided over $850,000 in funding for the solar array, which includes a total of 3,325 solar panels on the rooftops of two locations on Pitkin Avenue in Brooklyn.

“It’s an exciting time to be a part of the Community Distributed Generation evolution, especially in New York. We haven’t scratched the surface of its potential and look forward to being a leader in its development. The more projects developed, the cleaner and greener our City will become,” said David Matt, Principal, Daroga Power.

NY-Sun is Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s $1 billion initiative to advance the scale-up of solar and move the State closer to having a sustainable, self-sufficient solar industry.

Growing activity in community distributed generation (CDG) is in part due to the evolving Value of Distributed Energy Resources (VDER) policies and Governor Cuomo’s NY-Sun initiative, which are driving greater investments in the CDG sector.
