Con Edison’s ‘Community Power’ to BringSolar Energy to 350 NYCHA Households

Consolidated Edison Company Of NY

Workforce of NYCHA Residents Will Install the Panels

NEW YORK, Sept. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Con Edison is proposing placing solar panels on the roofs of New York City Housing Authority developments as part of its effort to make renewable energy available to low- and moderate-income customers.

The demonstration project by the energy company and its partners is called “Community Power” and would give 350 NYCHA households access to solar energy for a discounted price. Tenants could save an estimated $78 a year on their energy bills, and up to 30 NYCHA residents will receive paid job training and then be hired to install the panels.

The proposed 1-megawatt solar initiative will avoid the emission of more than 1.7 million pounds of carbon dioxide a year.

“The NYCHA tenants who participate will get the benefits of renewable energy without the upfront costs that can make solar energy challenging to afford,” said Margarett Jolly, director of Demonstration Projects for Con Edison. “We want all our customers to have access to solar energy, energy efficiency and other products and services that technology is making possible.”

“Community Power” represents a new business model for bringing self-sustaining community distributed generation to low- and moderate-income Con Edison customers.

“Solar One facilitates solar projects and provides job training in NYC’s underserved communities to advance a clean energy economy that benefits all New Yorkers,” said Noah Ginsburg, director of the Here Comes Solar program at non-profit Solar One, Con Edison’s lead partner on the project. “We are pleased to partner with Con Edison to implement ‘Community Power,’ which will demonstrate how low-income New Yorkers can play a central role in our transition to renewable power.”

"This partnership helps ensure that NYCHA residents can both participate in the green jobs economy and have access to low-cost solar power," said NYCHA Executive Vice President for Community Engagement and Partnerships Sideya Sherman. “We thank Con Edison and Solar One for keeping public housing residents at the heart of their green energy opportunities.”

Other partners have integral roles. WE ACT for Environmental Justice will help enroll customers, while Green City Force will recruit NYCHA residents for paid solar installer apprenticeships. Co-op Power will finance, own and operate the solar projects, and Resonant Energy will support project development.

In “Community Power,” direct-metered Con Edison customers living in NYCHA buildings who sign up and are selected will get a share of solar energy produced in their community and see a discount of up to15 percent on their normal energy cost.

The customers will pay a subscription fee and receive a discount – or credit - on their monthly bill, as long as they continue to pay their monthly subscription fee. The customer will always receive a discount or net benefit because the subscription price the customer pays will be less than the full dollar value of the solar energy they receive.

Though the demonstration project will last three years, participating households will save money for the life of the panels – which is expected to be about 25 years.

“Community Power” includes a unique cooperative ownership model for the solar panels. In addition to utility bill savings, “Community Power” subscribers will be members of Co-op Power, meaning they will have indirect ownership of the panels through their membership.

The project follows the Community Distributed Generation concept, under which a third party owns solar panels and subscribers – who do not necessarily live in the buildings with the panels - get the energy. This model makes it possible for renters in multi-family buildings to get solar energy, even though they do not own or control their roofs.

“Community Power,” is the second initiative by Con Edison to make solar energy available to low-income customers. In another project, the company will place panels on buildings it owns and make the power available to low-income customers, initially providing 3 megawatts to up to 1,600 customers.

Con Edison is a subsidiary of Consolidated Edison, Inc. [NYSE: ED], one of the nation’s largest investor-owned energy companies, with approximately $12 billion in annual revenues and $49 billion in assets. The utility delivers electricity, natural gas and steam to 3.4 million customers in New York City and Westchester County, N.Y.

An NRW-PBC is a contract for outsourcing technical, commercial, and construction activities related to NRW reduction, while providing the contractor with incentives to achieve the desired results. Unlike conventional NRW reduction contracts in which contractors are paid based on inputs (for example, number of connections replaced), NRW-PBCs pay the contractor for outputs, such as amount of water saved, number of illegal connections detected, or number of customers receiving 24/7 service. NRW-PBCs differ from management contracts, concessions, leases, or other forms of private sector participation, in that the utility retains control of utility operations and assets. The PBC allows the utility to take advantage of the expertise and incentivized performance of specialized private sector firms to reduce NRW. NRW-PBCs do not entail privatization of management, operations, or assets. This manual can be read in its entirety for general knowledge of NRW-PBCs and the NRW-PBC preparation process. Practitioners can also reference individual sections of the guide during the NRW-PBC preparation process. The primary users of this manual are those involved in assessing, preparing, and implementing NRW-PBCs. This includes governments, water utilities, regulators, consultants, contractors, and international finance institutions.  See Less -

PRESS RELEASE

(Oslo/New Delhi, 4 September 2018) Statkraft has acquired the 100 MW Tidong hydropower project in Himachal Pradesh, India. Approximately 60 per cent of the project works have been constructed so far.

The Tidong hydropower project is located on Tidong River, a tributary of Sutlej River, in the state of Himachal Pradesh (HP), in north-western India. The planned installed capacity is 100 MW, although there is a possibility for further expansion that will be evaluated. The acquisition is in line with Statkraft's strategy to develop renewable energy generation, building on Statkraft's more than 120 years of hydropower experience.

India's electricity demand is among the fastest growing in the world. Total electricity consumption was 1,210 TWh in 2017, with a demand growth of 6.5 per cent per year.  Statkraft has extensive industrial experience from hydropower in India, with a 49 per cent shareholding in two hydropower assets in operation in Himachal Pradesh: Malana (108 MW/340 GWh) and Allain Duhangan (192 MW/800 GWh). Recently Statkraft has also gained experience in solar and direct sales to business customers.

"We are very pleased to announce this deal, which positions Statkraft well for further growth in India, a core market for Statkraft", says Statkraft's Executive Vice President Jürgen Tzschoppe.

The Tidong project is approximately 60 per cent complete. Construction works will resume immediately after the closing of the transaction. The remaining construction works are expected to be completed in approximately two years.

In preparation of the construction phase, special attention has been given to health and safety measures. This is one of the major execution risks for projects in remote mountainous regions. The Tidong project management team, where most of the key resources have experience from recent Statkraft construction projects, is handpicked to manage this risk, and have strengthened the project organization with additional HSE expertise.

The transaction is an acquisition of 100 per cent of the shares in NSL Tidong Power Generation Private Limited.

About Statkraft
Statkraft is a leading company in hydropower internationally and Europe's largest generator of renewable energy. The Group produces hydropower, wind power, solar power, gas-fired power and supplies district heating. Statkraft is a global company in energy market operations. Statkraft has 3500 employees in 16 countries.
