Few areas were harder hit than the Far Rockaway community in Queens, located right on the Atlantic Ocean. Now, three low-income, Far Rockaway families have gotten a boost to their recovery that they never imagined possible: free solar panels on their roofs, which will lower their electricity bills and help to power their homes, pollution-free. Many more hard-hit New York low-income families will soon have solar power in their future, too. That’s because a great California-based non-profit organization—GRID Alternatives— is bringing its mission of installing solar panels on the homes of low-income families to our area.
Supporting solar power is a key priority for NRDC as we work to fight global warming and build the clean energy future.
