Characteristic Data

Characteristic data outlines the “what” and “where” of DER projects in New York State. By accessing the data file linked to the right, you can view the characteristics of individual DER projects at over 1,200 facilities, including facility names, locations, facility types, DER technologies used, electric generation or electric storage capacity, and more. These projects have either received NYSERDA funding or are energy storage projects that voluntarily provided information to NYSERDA.

As DER projects continue to grow throughout New York State, this data is updated as new projects are brought online.

The charts below provide an overview of the number and scale of DER projects across New York State. You can drill down on the number and capacity of DER projects by technology by changing the view to the right of each chart, where available.
