Solar Energy Systems (SES) and Big Sue, LLC (Big Sue) are changing the image of the City’s energy landscape. SES, one of the Northeast’s leading integrators of solar power systems, has successfully commissioned New York City’s first commercial net metered solar photovoltaic (PV) system for Big Sue, a general contracting and consulting firm which specializes in green building design and construction. The 40 kW DC PV system is most notable for its size and ability to send unused power back to the electrical network grid operated by Consolidated Edison of New York (Con Edison). “To our knowledge, this is the largest commercial net-metered PV system located on a network grid in the United States. It sets a precedent for future solar installations in New York City and around the country, where utility interconnectivity issues have plagued the installation of commercial PV systems on network grids,” said Solar Energy Systems President and CEO David Buckner, of his company’s design and installation.

Lieutenant Governor Mary Donohue today joined the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to announce the installation of two fuel cells and a photovoltaic (PV) awning system at NYSERDA headquarters in Albany The two fuel cell systems will provide power to the headquarters' systems including computer, security and phones. The solar electric awning will power one-half of NYSERDA's computer-driven power-load while inverters will convert 3.6 kilowatts of direct current produced by the solar modules, into alternating current.
