If you are a Long Island business owner, transitioning to solar energy is about to become more viable than ever because of PSEG LI’s new Feed-In Tariff (FIT) program, which is scheduled to launch on August 1, 2016.
The 10th annual New York Solar Summit, hosted by Sustainable CUNY, was held on June 20th (which coincidentally was also EnterSolstice, the first day of summer). EnterSolar is proud to have sponsored and presented at this event, which drives the support of solar energy policy in New York State.
EnterSolar recently spent the day with a group of Brazilian energy professionals and policymakers, who were invited by the U.S. State Department to tour one of the largest solar systems in New York City. Brazil currently has a significant hydropower system in place, but the environmental impacts of hydropower have led many government and private sector agencies to explore solar power as a more reliable renewable energy option. To help educate these energy experts on the viability of going solar in Brazil, the State Department initiated a program called “Climate Partners Brazil,” which fosters dialogue on clean energy technology, policy, and finance. Representatives from the State Department, the United Nations, and the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) organized meetings between Brazilian energy practitioners and leading renewable energy businesses like EnterSolar.
