NYPA's Statewide Solar Photovoltaic Initiative:
We are currently exploring a public-private partnership for the installation of up to 100 megawatts (MW) of solar photovoltaic systems, including roof-mounted and ground-mounted PV arrays, at municipal facilities, public and private schools and government buildings throughout the state.
Eligible facilities are invited to explore the criteria for participating in this initiative and propose sites for the installation of solar arrays.
The RFP for a solar developer was issued on January 27, 2010. A bidders' conference was held on March 2, 2010 and 43 proposals were submitted before the Earth Day 2010 deadline for bids. These proposals are now being evaluated.
Companies interested in becoming involved in solar development in New York State are invited to network with developers and other firms in our business-to-business Statewide Solar PV Initiative Business Registry.
