The NYC Solar Partnership developed a pilot Solarize campaign in Brooklyn Community Board 6 (Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Columbia Waterfront, Gowanus, Park Slope, and Red Hook). The “Solarize Brooklyn CB6” pilot ran from May through September 2015 and was supported by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Rooftop Solar Challenge II. Two installers were competitively selected by the Partnership and community representatives. Both installers offered five tiers of pricing to both residential and commercial buildings in Community Board 6.Solarize Brooklyn CB6 held nine public educational workshops and participated in numerous community events, ultimately reaching more than 660 residents and businesses. In total, 357 people signed up for site assessments, representing more than 400 buildings, including 21 businesses or non-profits and 52 multifamily buildings.
