The City of New York is installing solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on the rooftops of its facilities as part of a commitment to install 100 MW of solar PV capacity on municipal buildings by 2025.  As part of this initiative, a former high school at 99 Terrace View Avenue in the Marble Hill neighborhood of the Bronx was identified as an ideal candidate to host a solar installation. ConEdison Solutions owns and operates a solar array that now supplies electricity back to the facility under a Power Purchase Agreement. By installing solar power at public schools, NYC is reducing the city’s greenhouse gas emissions, while providing students with real world examples of clean energy in action.
