The New Yorkification of Solar,  October 18th, 6-8pm, New York
Event Description

In New York City, the barriers facing solar implementation are outmatched only by the demand for solar. The result is an enormous amount of creativity applied to solar design and installment. In a city of this density, the benefits are uniquely distributed to end users remote from the installation.

This panel will explore innovations in solar that are making the technology more adaptable to the New York environment and beyond.

Solutions include elevated FDNY Fire Code-compliant canopy systems for flat roofs, as well as horizontal wall-mounted systems; micro-virtual net-metering for multi-family buildings; and new battery storage options to manage peak loads and make solar systems more resilient.
