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.
