NY-Sun is a public-private partnership. NY-Sun proposes to grow the solar industry and make solar technology more affordable for all New Yorkers. Community solar offers local and clean energy that can often offset a greater portion of the business’s electric bill with predictable rates and terms without the business having to install solar.
