NYC Solar Thermal
In hot and sunny regions, solar thermal systems can be a great decision. But even in New York's relatively cold climate, solar water heaters can help provide year-round hot water for homes and businesses. The economics of solar water heaters depend largely on the available incentives and on the type of fuel being displaced. For example, a customer that has an expensive source of energy to heat their water, such as electricity or fuel oil, will receive greater benefits from going solar than a customer using relatively lower cost natural gas.
NYC Solar thermal roadmap
The NYC Solar Thermal Road Map will establish a strategic plan for the future growth of a solar thermal market in the city. Through this report, CUNY is working with the NYC Solar Thermal Roundtable of industry stakeholders and partners to actively address barriers, devise strategies for leveraging potential opportunities, as well as design useful tools to support market growth. Findings from the NYC Economic Development Corporation Solar Thermal pilot program helped inform the NYC Solar Thermal Roadmap. The roadmap aims to serve as a framework to integrate relevant initiatives across the city and is expected to be available shortly. Sign up here to be added to our distribution list.
