Community Power RFP

Request for Proposals

Solar Engineering, Procurement and Construction Services for Community Power

The Community Power Demonstration Project (“Community Power”) is the result of a partnership between Con Edison, NYCHA, and a team assembled and led by Solar One. The Project seeks to install 1.2 Megawatts-DC of community shared solar across three NYCHA campuses for the benefit of low- and moderate-income households who otherwise might not have access to the benefits of solar power. Solar One is issuing this RFP on behalf of the Community Power team and the solar project’s long-term owner, Co-op Power.

The project is receiving preferential roof leases from NYCHA through its ACCESSolar program as well as support from Con Edison as one of its REV Demonstration Projects.
