A new joint venture between OYA Solar and Crauderueff & Associates plans to develop 200 rooftop solar-plus-storage community solar projects in New York City.
The partnership aims to advance the significant rooftop solar opportunity for the more than 2,500 regulated affordable housing buildings in New York City, solarize low-income communities, and reduce energy costs for thousands of low- and moderate-income (LMI) households.
“We’re committed to helping New York tackle climate change while reducing energy costs with community solar for those who need it most. New York is a leader in developing innovative policies to help realize the goals of an equitable clean energy future,” comments Manish Nayar, founder and CEO of OYA Solar.
“Solar can help preserve New York City’s affordable housing stock and reduce electric costs for our city’s low-income residents,” notes Rob Crauderueff, CEO of Crauderueff and Associates. “Now is the time to turn this potential to action – we can’t afford to wait. We’re excited to work with OYA Solar to help make New York’s energy system cleaner, more diverse and more equitable.”
According to the partners, community solar subscribers can save up to 10% on the cost of electric power.
