At Thomas Edison High School in Queens, a recently-completed solar installation generates enough electricity to meet 65% of the school’s energy consumption, while also providing a unique learning opportunity for students enrolled in the school’s solar energy vocational track. The project is an initiative of New York City’s Administrative Services Department (NYC DCAS), which in 2016 began surveying city-owned buildings to find spaces suitable for installing solar panels, with the goal of producing 100 MW per year of solar energy by 2025.
So far, the city has installed solar panels on 110 buildings, including 60 schools, producing 16 MW of energy a year — enough to power 2,600 homes.
Edison Energy is proud to be a part of this ongoing initiative in partnership with Generate Capital. Together, we have helped provide the benefits of clean energy to the Thomas Edison High School community!
