RESILIENT SOLAR PROJECT
Supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Sustainable CUNY Smart DG Hub - Resilient Solar Project is a 3-year initiative initiated in 2014 to develop a pathway for greater deployment of resilient solar. To encourage retrofitting of existing systems for resiliency and to ensure that a higher percentage of future solar deployments are resilient, battery storage technology needs a pathway to mainstream integration. The Smart DG Hub - Resilient Solar Project provides the platform and works with agencies like the Department of Buildings and the Fire Department to work through the challenges of integrating this new technology into codes and regulations. Contact a NY Solar Ombudsman for more information.
Smart DG Hub Reports and Resources
Sustainable CUNY, working together with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Meister Consultants Group and in collaboration with the Smart DG Hub Working Groups have developed multiple reports and technical guides on Solar+Storage. Resources, Reports and Guides
Critical Facility Solar+ Evaluator Map Layer is an additional map layer and interactive mapping tool that is designed to display critical facilities in NYC where installing resilient PV (solar+storage) would be beneficial. Critical Facility Solar+ Evaluator Map
