NYSolar Smart February Newsletter

The City University of New York, PepsiCo, City and County of Albany, and the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation participated in NYSolar Smart SunShares, a NY-Sun group purchasing pilot program. Employees of these organizations, as well as their families and friends, were able to receive discounted pricing on solar through SunShares, which ran from September to December. The conversion rate of moving proposals to signed contracts was nearly 20 percent, as opposed to the average industry conversion rate of about five percent. A total of 491 sites were assessed, resulting in 95 signed contracts to install a total solar capacity of 572.61 kW. Solar Liberty is the proud solar installer of this initiative.
