Commercial Solar Initiative

The commercial program will focus on larger sites, including both rooftops and parking lot solar canopies. NYCHA aims to earn revenue from rooftop leases, provide green jobs for residents, and expand the availability of low-cost renewable power to NYCHA residents and other low-to-moderate income (LMI) populations. For more information on this program, see the “Solar on NYC Public Housing Opportunity” webinar. NYCHA issued the first RFP for this program in October 2017 and announced partnerships with two development teams in April 2018. Press Release Additional sites will be offered in the future, although NYCHA has not yet released a timetable for future rounds of RFPs

Register in NYCHA's iSupplier System

In order to participate in the RFP process, solar developers must register in NYCHA’s iSupplier system and New York City’s PASSPort System. NYCHA and Sustainable CUNY have recorded this tutorial to guide developers through the registration process. The tutorial can be accessed here
