NYC Solar Thermal
In hot and sunny regions, solar water heating, also known as 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 Water Heating roadmap
The NYC Solar Water Heating Roadmap establishes a strategic plan for the future growth of a solar thermal market in the city. Through this report, CUNY worked 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 New York City Economic Development Corporation Solar Thermal pilot program helped inform the NYC Solar Water Heating Roadmap. The roadmap aims to serve as a framework to integrate relevant initiatives across the City.
