About Us

Here Comes Solar is Solar One’s program that facilitates solar adoption in hard-to-serve markets by providing comprehensive technical assistance to building owners so they can identify and implement cost-effective solar projects. Since 2014 Here Comes Solar has helped more than 200 NYC buildings adopt solar.

Change Statement

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.

History of Here Comes Solar

When Here Comes Solar was founded in 2014, our major focus area was organizing solar purchasing groups for the 1-4 family rowhome market. The 1-4 family program was highly successful and in 2016 we shifted our focus toward other underserved sectors of the solar marketplace. Our current programmatic focuses are multifamily and affordable housing, resilient solar (solar with battery backup) and community solar. Visit the pages under the programs menu to learn more about how we work with building owners and partner with community based organizations.

Our Work

Here Comes Solar has helped over 200 buildings in NYC adopt solar. Click the photos to learn more about some of the projects we’ve worked on, which range from rooftop solar on HDFC co-ops to large multi-building portfolios to owned community solar. We can provide technical assessments of your rooftop, consultations on the many technology choices available to you, including financing options, incentives and costs and savings, and help you prepare requests for proposals and solicit bids from qualified solar installers. Once your system is installed, it will produce clean, affordable energy for 25 years, reducing your long-term operating costs.
