The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is pleased to announce the New York Sun Competitive Photovoltaic (PV) Program, an expansion of the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) Customer-Sited Tier Regional Program1, to include Upstate New York. The New York Sun Competitive PV Program is part of the New York State (NYS) RPS Customer-Sited Tier Program. NYSERDA invites proposals for the installation of customer-sited PV projects in New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) load zones A through J and Renewable Biogas-fueled electric generation projects in NYISO load zones G through J. All systems must be greater than 200 kW. Complete proposals that demonstrate project viability and capability will be competitively selected based on their incentive bid in dollars per kilowatt hour ($/kWh). All Projects must be installed within eight (8) months of the award date.
1 The Regional Program was previously issued under PON 2156 and PON 2484, in response to a Commission Order initiating a “Geographic Balance” component to the RPS CST Program.
