What is Community Solar?

What is ‘community solar’ or in this case ‘micro community solar’?

Let’s take a deep dive into urban solar life in NY. @brooklynsolarworks. We go from showroom to onsite installations. Co-Founder @TRLudwig explains all the styles and types plus details like pitch and kilowatts.

@BrooklynSolarWorks built out their niche because most solar panel companies do not want to work with flat roofs.

Owners:
They created an elevated solar array design which incorporates the functionality of solar and allows for a cool chill spot underneath!

Older buildings are a better fit because they are built better.

The average solar array on a brownstone or rowhouse rooftop will generally cover the cost of powering that building.

You can select your array based on style or function.

Fun fact: The 9 foot clearance from the fire code is based on a 6 foot Fireman’s ability to swing an ax

Renters:
It utilizes a process called ‘net metering’ where solar owners share their excess energy back into the grid and get credited for it on their bill.

Mythbuster:
Solar panels do not work best at peak hot and sunny times – The insides are computerized and work best at cooler temperatures
