Community Solar Sponsor Resources

In September 2019, the NYS Department of Public Service (DPS) and NYSERDA launched the Community Solar (CDG) Crediting and Working Group in order to identify potential roadblocks and issues CDG projects may face. This group is a collaborative effort and includes CDG Developers, Sponsors, and a member from each of the Utilities (not NYPA or PSEG).

The below documents have been created by the working group in order to provide guidance for Sponsors and Utilities. These documents will also be posted on each of the Utilities websites as well.

Our Quality Assurance (QA) program is responsible for inspecting a percentage of all the NY-Sun projects. We have developed the following guidance documents to help you comply with the QA program.
