New York Standard
for Clean Energy
New York is always moving forward when it comes to supporting its local communities for a better tomorrow. Choosing community solar means more sustainable energy for your community and could mean long-term savings for you.
Through our solar credit system, community solar applies credits to your regular utility bill each month based on the solar output from your allocation of your solar farm. Now sharing solar with your neighbors is more valuable than ever.
Not sure if there is a community solar farm in your area? We are building solar farms in the Orange, Rockland, Central Hudson, and Albany territories, and we continue to expand to more areas.
Savings depend on community solar pricing versus applicable bill credit for solar farm production. Bill credit amounts will vary by utility territory and are subject to change.
Savings are not guaranteed. Terms and conditions apply and not everyone will qualify for Community Solar. Contact NRG Community Solar LLC for details.
What’s Happening in New York?
New York is setting the bar when it comes to creating a clean energy culture for its
communities. Here’s how much a New York NRG Community Solar customer can offset CO2 emissions:
Miles driven by an average passenger vehicle
Gallons of gasoline
Acres of U.S. forests
in one year
Calculation based on the estimated farm production of an average 7 kW allocation over the 20 year life of the Agreement.
For more information about this calculation visit the EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator.
“I like Community Solar because I can participate in locally sourced solar without having to make a large investment, and my friends who have apartments can participate in solar without having a structure to build it on.”
New York Clean Energy Standard
NRG Community Solar is building solar farms in New York to deliver clean energy to your community’s existing power grid, supporting the state’s Clean Energy Standard that requires 50 percent of New York’s electricity to come from renewable energy sources like wind and solar by 2030.
