Grid Ready: Strategies for Interconnecting Large-Scale PV in New York City

Lars Lisell, Katherine Anderson, Xiangkun Li, Tria Case, Shannon Liburd, Laurie Reilly

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


This Grid Ready Solar project is intended to help create transparency for building owners and developers, so they can better understand and more quickly navigate the interconnection process for large-scale photovoltaic (PV) projects on Con Edison's electrical grid in New York City. Phase 1 of the project provided high-level technical screens of grid interconnection requirements in an attempt to streamline the interconnection of large-scale solar PV systems to the New York City grid. In Phase 2 of the Grid Ready project, the focus of this report, Sustainable CUNY worked with NREL to evaluate a range of solutions for improving the economics of large-scale (over 200 kW) PV within the five boroughs of New York City that are in Con Edison's service territory, as identified on the NY Solar Map.
