  1. NYC mayor unveils rooftop solar array at Brooklyn Navy Yard

    The Bill de Blasio administration and the Brooklyn Navy Yard dedicated a new 3,152-panel rooftop solar installation, bringing New York City a step closer toward reaching Mayor Bill de Blasio’s goal of generating 100 MW of renewable energy on public buildings by 2025. ConEdison Solutions, a national energy services company, has installed, and will operate and maintain the solar installation. The site will generate 1.1 million kWh of energy per year. The solar installation on the rooftop of Building 293 is one of the largest rooftop solar installations in New York City, according to the mayor's office. The energy produced by the project is the equivalent of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 1.4 million pounds and saving 76,000 gallons of gasoline each year. “We’re doubling jobs at the Navy Yard, and those workers, computers and machines will need sustainable energy. On rooftops across the city, we’re installing new solar panels to cut emissions, create green jobs and save money,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “As a home to 300 businesses and growing, we’re always looking for ways to be greener and more energy efficient,” said Brooklyn Navy Yard President and CEO David Ehrenberg. “The Yard is already on the cutting edge of technology and manufacturing, and with this solar installation we can now call the Yard a leader in renewable energy as well. As a forward-thinking and sustainable home to the technology of tomorrow, we’re proud to contribute to the city’s ambitious energy goal of generating 100 megawatts of renewable energy on public buildings by 2025." This project was made possible, at no cost to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, as a result of $625,863.83 in New York State Energy Research and Development Authorityincentives secured by ConEdison Solutions. “New York City is quickly becoming a renewable energy leader as demonstrated by this solar installation here at the Brooklyn Navy Yard,” said Mark Noyes, President and CEO of ConEdison Solutions. “ConEdison Solutions has been proud to work with the Brooklyn Navy Yard team and Mayor de Blasio’s administration to make this project a reality and bring the City a step closer to achieving its ambitious renewable energy goals.” “This project demonstrates the success of solar across New York State as a result of NY-Sun, the State’s $1 billion initiative to achieve a thriving solar market,” said John B. Rhodes, president and CEO of NYSERDA . “Solar in New York State has grown 575 percent between 2012 and 2015 and this strong growth continues, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, growing jobs and helping the State build a clean, resilient and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers.”
