Further Together: Unlocking the Most Benefit by Collaborating in Decarbonization

This session will deconstruct how collaboration is a key component in helping communities decarbonize.

The Crescent Farms Community Solar Project, built atop two Staten Island churches, is backed by workforce development labor and strategic financing structures. The project is exemplary in integrating financing, design, and deep stakeholder engagement to increase accessibility of clean energy, especially in disadvantaged communities.

NYCEEC will host a panel with key project players to discuss the synthesis, financing structures, outcomes, and lessons learned during the project development.
