CL-855: Community Solar Survey

The New York State, Office of General Services (OGS), Procurement Services is conducting a survey to help determine if there is a need for a centralized (statewide) contract for Community Solar.  

Community solar offers local, clean energy that can often offset a greater portion of your facility’s electric bill with predictable rates and terms without having to install solar at your facility. Community Solar consists of an off-site solar farm, developed and owned by a third party, that offers shares in the farm to multiple customers who then receive net metering credits for the electricity generated. Benefits of community solar include not having to install solar on site, cost savings, the support of clean, locally generated renewable energy, and pay as you go subscription options.

For additional information about Community Solar, please visit https://www.nyserda.ny.gov/All-Programs/Programs/NY-Sun.

It’s important for us to understand your perspective and invite you to please take our survey no later than Friday, March 8, 2019 by clicking the link below.   


We welcome your feedback and thank you for your time.  If you have any questions or would like to provide additional information please contact Todd Kayser at: [email protected].
