Rooftop Revolution: How Solar Panels on Public School Rooftops Can Jumpstart the
Local Green Collar Economy and Dramatically Expand Renewable Energy in New York City

New York City’s public school system, the nation’s largest, represents a vast, untapped source of solar energy and solar jobs. Public school buildings, with their relatively large footprints and expansive rooftops, could be a launching pad for the expansion of solar electricity in New York City. And fairly structured Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) can make this renewable energy expansion an economic reality – with millions of dollars in potential savings and minimal reliance on local tax resources. This report presents new data derived from the City University of New York’s NYC Solar Map showing that the installation of solar panels on the rooftops of 1,094 public school buildings in New York City could host 169.46 megawatts of clean, renewable electricity and eliminate 76,696 tons of carbon from the air each year – the equivalent of planting over 400,000 trees. A full build-out of solar panels on public school roofs would increase solar capacity in the five boroughs by over 2,500 percent, and could create an estimated 5,423 green collar jobs.
