On 8 November 2018 Solar Power World reported:
New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) announced the selection of UPROSE, Solar One, and Co-op Power to develop and operate a community solar garden at the Brooklyn Army Terminal (BAT). The rooftop solar array will be the first cooperatively-owned project if its kind in New York State, and will connect hundreds of New Yorkers and industrial businesses to sustainable energy through a subscription-based service.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
Once up and running in late 2019, subscribers will join the New York City Community Energy Cooperative and make monthly payments in exchange for solar energy credits that reduce their energy bills. The project is expected to serve approximately 200 households and businesses, and result in more than $1 million in net electricity bill savings for New Yorkers over 25 years. While similar programs have been launched in Minnesota, Colorado, and Massachusetts, all resulting in energy cost-savings, the project at the BAT is unique for leveraging rooftop space in a dense urban setting and sharing its ownership with subscribers.
