Accelerating Decarbonization in New York City

Clean Energy Communities Program

The Clean Energy Communities Program (CECP) is a program funded by the New York State Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). The CECP program provides grants, direct technical support to communities, and recognition to local governments across New York State that demonstrate leadership in the area of clean energy.

CEC Grant Program

Solar One has partnered with the NYC Accelerator program and NYSERDA to launch a grant program to promote clean energy in Northern Manhattan, Central Brooklyn, and the South Bronx. The grants, which range from $10,000-25,000 each, will support clean energy upgrades for affordable housing properties and outreach campaigns to promote NYC Accelerator’s free clean energy advisory services.
