Performance Data

You can access real-world data from over 1,200 live DER projects in New York State in one of two ways, by viewing a map of DERs across New York or by searching for projects through criteria you select. NYSERDA-incentivized DER projects are included in this data set.

Performance data for all projects is updated on a daily basis. View current and past data on electricity generation and storage with actual performance, not models or estimates.

Analyze the abundance of data contained within individual facility data pages by:

  • Viewing data by a selected time range, by month, or by day
  • Getting a snapshot of performance capacity ratings and efficiency
  • Plotting electricity generation against ambient temperatures
  • Comparing DER facilities with peers by clicking on the benchmark tab
  • Analyzing DERs or aggregate data from multiple DERs by using the Portfolio Manager tool

All data is available for download as a .csv file.

About this data

The DER performance data available on this site includes:

  • Energy Storage: All operational and completed energy storage projects funded by NYSERDA under the Bulk and Retail Energy Storage incentive programs. This data set does not include all energy storage projects in New York.
  • Solar: All completed and operational solar projects funded by NY-Sun’s Commercial & Industrial incentive program. This data set does not include all solar projects in New York.
  • Combined Heat and Power, Anaerobic Digester, and Fuel Cell: Completed and operational projects funded under now-closed incentive programs. This data set does not include all CHP, anaerobic digesters, and fuel cell projects in New York.
