ConEd says NYC customers installed record amount of rooftop solar in 2022

February 16, 2023


In 2022, Consolidated Edison (ConEd) customers installed a record number of solar arrays on the rooftops of their businesses and homes, according to the energy giant.

Over 9,600 solar projects were completed throughout Westchester County and the five boroughs of New York City, ConEd announced this week. These projects have the capacity to produce 89 megawatts of clean electricity, with one megawatt equal to one million watts.

Queens customers led the region in solar installations with more than 3,500 projects completed, such as the installation of solar panels. Brooklyn was not far behind with just over 2,000 solar projects completed. Westchester County led the region in the amount of capacity installed with nearly 30 megawatts of clean energy capable of being produced.

With 2022’s solar additions, ConEd customers in Greater New York have completed more than 52,000 solar projects with the capacity to produce almost 490 megawatts of clean energy — a change-maker for a cleaner future, utility heads said.
