K-Solar Program

Clean energy, a chance to learn about turning sunlight into electricity and cost savings. Schools all over the state are part of the K-Solar Program.

The K-Solar Program through NYSERDA empowers schools to procure affordable solar energy without impacting school district budgets. Governor Cuomo initiated this joint program of NYPA, NYSERDA, the Governor’s Energy Office, and the NYS Education Department, and it has become a national model for school solarization.

This historic school energy program—the largest multi-agency solar buying consortium project in the United States—inspires the next generation of energy leaders and helps schools statewide to save money and lower their carbon footprints. School districts in 59 of New York State’s 62 counties (more than ⅓ of the schools in the state) have joined the K-Solar Program.
