About the solar project

Community solar was established in New York under the Shared Renewables Program in 2015. Through this program, New York residents can sign up to support a new, local solar project. The energy from the Solar Project flows to the electric grid, replacing fossil fuels and directly lowering emissions. When you sign up to support this project, you will receive clean energy credits that lower your electric bill.
