New York City Passes Century Mark For Solar Generation
City Residents and Businesses Hit 100-Megawatt Milestone
Con Edison tries to make the interconnection process as easy and quick as possible for customers who choose solar. The company does not require an engineering review for systems under 25 kilowatts. A page on Con Edison’s website explains the installation process.
The company even installed solar panels on a roof at its headquarters building in Manhattan. The 200 panels generate 40 kilowatts.
Con Edison has proposed placing solar panels on its rooftops and properties and making that power available to low-income customers, a group that now has limited access to solar.
The company is also a member of the Solar Progress Partnership, a group of six New York State utilities and four leading solar companies. The group wants solar energy to continue to develop in a way that is fair to all customers and that provides adequate funding for a reliable grid.
