Description: Sunset Park Solar is a cooperatively-managed community solar project under development in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Roughly 200 households—mostly in Sunset Park—will share a solar array being installed on the Brooklyn Army Terminal, a light manufacturing facility owned by the City’s Economic Development Corp, and will join the co-op managing the project, the New York City Community Energy Co-op. Additionally, six local residents completed a solar installer training course and will have the opportunity to join the installer, 770 Electric Corp, for project construction. The project is currently recruiting subscribers and finalizing logistics for construction and grid interconnection.
