Uniform PV Permits


The NY-Sun Initiative brings together and expands existing programs administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, Long Island Power Authority, and the New York Power Authority, to ensure a coordinated, well-funded solar energy expansion plan. The current solar program is investing $800 million through 2015. In order to standardize and streamline permitting of PV systems, the NY-Sun Initiative has published a standard photovoltaic permit for local governments.
