Announcing Sunset Park Solar

Here Comes Solar is thrilled to announce that we and our partners were selected by the New York City Economic Development Corporation to develop Sunset Park Solar, a 672 kilowatt-DC community shared solar project on the roof of the Brooklyn Army Terminal.

The project will be New York City’s first community solar project owned and operated by a cooperative for the benefit of local residents and businesses. The project team includes Solar One, UPROSE, Co-op Power, Resonant Energy and 770 Electric Corp. This project is an embodiment of UPROSE’ vision for community-owned renewables in Sunset Park. The system will be installed by a local workforce including job trainees, and the system will be owned by Co-op Power’s NYC Community Energy Cooperative and UPROSE, a Sunset Park-based environmental justice organization.
