If you would like to join the NYC and/or NYS Installer Roundtable, please send a request with your solar company email to nysolar@cuny.edu 


Sustainable CUNY has worked with numerous partners to develop and publish a multitude of resources including permit forms, reports, plans, surveys, FAQ's, check-lists, analytics and more to assist the solar industry in the NY State market. Significant financial and technical support to prepare these documents have been provided by: the U.S. Department of Energy, the NY-Sun Initiative, NYSERDA, the New York Power Authority, Con Edison, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the NYC Department of Buildings and the City University of New York.
