Our Mission

Solar One’s Here Comes Solar program envisions a just, renewable, and resilient energy future where communities disproportionately impacted by social and environmental injustices have equitable access to the benefits of solar energy.

We provide education and technical guidance to make solar accessible, collaborating with local communities to build an inclusive energy transition.

To date, HCS has facilitated more than 800 successful solar projects in NYC’s underserved market segments, delivering utility bill savings to those who need it most while providing environmental benefit to all New Yorkers.

Our Impact

We are proud to be working on some of New York City’s groundbreaking solar initiatives, bringing the benefits of solar to New Yorkers in neighborhoods and building types that have had limited access to solar until now. From co-ops and affordable housing to community solar projects that benefit renters, we are partnering with building owners and community groups to make their solar projects happen.
