Community Solar Programs in NYC - EmPower Solar

Community solar programs on Long Island and in New York City enable all PSEG LI and ConEd customers to reduce their electric costs by subscribing to a solar project in their community and virtually offsetting their bill with renewable energy. It also enables owners of large properties to generate revenue by hosting a community solar project on their rooftop, parking lot, or open space.

How does community solar work?

Community distributed generation (CDG), or shared solar, consists of one central solar array which is virtually connected to ten or more “subscribers”. The energy produced by the array offsets the utility bills of subscribers. Subscribers are often those who aren’t able to install solar panels on their own property for a variety of reasons including:

  • No roof space or shaded roof space
  • Older roof or incompatible roofing material
  • Condo/co-op board rules
  • Municipal zoning codes prohibitive of solar

Community Solar Near You

While solar power is most readily available to homeowners with ideal property and roof conditions, we believe that it should be accessible to all.

We are proud to have installed the first community solar project on Long Island in December 2017, and have continued to partner with local businesses to help our communities access clean, renewable energy and save on their electric bills.

Community Solar Coming to Grumman Studios

Formerly the Apollo Lunar Module assembly plant, Grumman Studios, creatively repurposed as a world class movie and TV production facility, continues a local legacy of innovation through the adoption of solar power and battery storage.

This 4500 panel 3MW system will allow Grumman Studios to pass clean energy savings on to Long Island residents and businesses.

Become a part of Long Island history and save on your electric bill when you enroll in this community solar project.
