Prevailing Wage Incentive Adder

For solar projects 1 MWac and greater in capacity, NY-Sun incentive eligibility is conditioned upon developers paying prevailing wage or entering into project labor agreements for construction activities associated with project development and installation. This requirement only applies to projects that submit their initial utility interconnection application after April 14, 2022. Projects subject to the prevailing wage requirement are eligible to receive an additional NY-Sun incentive adder. For Upstate Commercial/Industrial projects that are 1 MWac and greater in capacity, the adder is $0.125 per Watt DC.
