Partnering with the New York Power Authority (NYPA), Inclusive Prosperity Capital (IPC) developed a rooftop solar PV + battery storage system for the Town of East Hampton, New York. Installed by Solar Liberty, a leading solar EPC developer with over 20 years of experience, the 76-kW solar PV and 60-kW battery storage system is the first municipal solar + storage system on Long Island. It is also IPC’s first project on Long Island and the first that includes solar plus storage. The New York Green Bank provided construction and permanent financing for the project.

Officials celebrate at the ribbon cutting ceremony on April 20, 2023.

The electricity generated by the solar PV system will charge the 60-kW battery, providing resilient generating capacity for the Town. The system offsets a portion of the energy costs for the building via credits from the energy produced, and any additional energy credits will be allocated to other buildings on the Town Hall campus. The project will contribute to the Town’s goal of generating 100% of its community electricity from renewable sources by 2030.
