Solar One has received U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding to implement The Solar Power and Battery Back-up Program for Community Facilities. The project is funded through the NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program of the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery (GOSR). This program will enable several non-profits community centers to generate solar energy throughout the year, maintain critical operations for emergency response and serve as a community power hub during severe weather events and grid outages.
Solar One is currently seeking proposals for solar + storage construction services for the Block Insitute, Gerritsen Beach Volunteer Fire Department, and the Kings Bay Youth Organization. These co-located solar + storage projects have been designed to provide back-up power only that can be fully charged by rooftop solar. These projects are fully funded. Funding for the systems will be delivered through GOSR.
