How to scale rooftop community solar in cities

New York has over 1 gigawatt of community solar, more than any other
state, with another 700 projects in the pipeline that will add another 2
gigawatts of solar capacity.

Yet few of these projects are in the state’s
most iconic city, home to more than 8 million people. “It’s not because
they don’t pencil out” economically, Russell Wilcox, co-founder and CEO
of Urban Energy, said of siting urban community-solar projects in New York
City and its surroundings. “It’s the complexity of the market.”

But despite this market complexity, rooftop community solar is garnering more
attention, and not just in New York state, which has a goal of 10 gigawatts
of distributed solar. A number of affordable housing agencies, including
the New York City Housing Authority, are investing in rooftop community
solar projects. In Washington, D.C., the Solar for All program installed
more than 160 community solar rooftop projects from 2019 to 2021 that
provided utility bill credits to 6,000 income-qualified families.
