The NYC Grid Ready Solar project is working to reduce technical and financial barriers for large-scale PV projects in NYC. The recent growth of large-scale PV installations on the electric grid resulted in the need to address potential adverse technical impacts in certain locations, as currently developers were not able to screen in advance where technical issues may arise. The project is supported by the NY-Sun Initiative and is led by Sustainable CUNY in collaboration with Consolidated Edison, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. For NYC buildings with large-scale PV potential (>200kW) CUNY, Con Edison, and NREL analyzed the technical risk factors for grid interconnection, and is creating public resources to allow developers to make informed decisions regarding project location and cost. These resources will include: a layer on the NY Solar Map showing whether buildings may or may not face interconnection issues; a guide to the order of magnitude of costs for typical mitigation strategies; and an overview of short and long-term solutions for medium and low opportunity buildings.
|DISCLAIMER: Con Edison completed a preliminary analysis ("Analysis") to determine if there are foreseeable utility grid upgrades as of the time of the posting that are required to interconnect the potential PV system size listed. This Analysis should only be used as a rough guide to understand potential required upgrades to install a large PV system on this site and is not a substitute for any element of the Standardized Interconnection Requirements process that must be followed for any interconnection governed by that process. As noted, the Analysis was completed in January- June of 2016 and will necessarily change with time. Con Edison is not responsible for the information included on the NYC Grid Ready website. The information presented in Grid Ready reflects the system characteristics as of September 2016.|
Please draw the area for your solar installation by clicking the draw tool (located upper left on map):
Since LIDAR data is not yet available in this region, the Map relies on your drawing for system size and location. Draw the installation on your south- or west-facing roof or on the ground (for a ground-mounted system).Click the Satellite view button for an aerial view of your property.
Watch this tutorial video for more information.
Your building was not detected. Please click on your building or draw your solar system.
It looks like this roof may not be ideal for solar, possibly due to shade or rooftop equipment. Use the draw tool (located upper left on map) to see how much energy a solar installation on this roof would generate.
