When you think about solar panels, a New York City rooftop is likely not the first place you envision. But NYC’s high costs of electricity and progressive renewable energy policies make going solar in the five boroughs not only feasible, but economical.
As a member of the NYC Solar Partnership with Sustainable CUNY and the Mayor's Office of Sustainability, NYCEDC has helped solar energy in New York City grow by over 800% in the past five years, making solar a competitive renewable energy source.
NYCEDC is seeking an operator with a large entrepreneurship network, proven business-development success, and experience with securing and managing real estate to develop and launch the Urban Technology Growth Hub.
RISE : NYC is a global competition to identify and deploy new and innovative technologies to prepare New York City small businesses for the impacts of future storms, sea level rise, and other effects of climate change.
