Come to Brooklyn SolarWorks's office and stand underneath a solar system!
Brooklyn SolarWorks has pioneered the flat roof solar installation process here in New York. We often receive questions from homeowners in the city regarding the solar potential of their home. At our headquarters, we'll cover these questions along with solar basics, incentives, and installation specifics.
Launched in 2017 SolarCoin is the world’s first and only solar cryptocurrency. Unlike energy and carbon-intensive cryptos such as Bitcoin and Etherium, SolarCoins are mined through the production of clean solar electricity. Therefore, any owner of a rooftop solar system can produce SolarCoins and exchange them for either crypto or conventional currency.
Join Christopher Neidl of Brooklyn SolarWorks and Solar Coin co-founder Nick Gogerty for a workshop on how current and soon-to-be solar owners can get started in basic SolarCoin investing. The discussion will cover the origins of SolarCoin as well as some potential future directions for its utilization here in Brooklyn.
Current and potential solar owners, and anyone curious about SolarCoin and crytocurrenies in general should attend. Solar Owners should bring their laptops so they can get signed up, on the spot, as a SolarCoin producer.
Who should attend:
Current and potential solar owners
Anyone curious about cryptocurrency

The banner in the fight for climate progress is being carried by cities, and it takes all of us doing our part to get the work done. Emerging technologies have made it easier to live sustainably and comfortably at home, while solar power prices have dropped. Combined with high performance building supplies, solar homes have the potential to transition to full-electric power for heating as well as electric demand - removing the gas line completely.
Brooklyn SolarWorks and 475 High Performance Building Supply present the best-case solutions that New York City homeowners are using for future-proofing buildings. Using recent case studies, the presentation will cover everything from specifics of product installation to the economic case for common local improvements .
Who Should Attend:

Trump has been decidedly anti-solar throughout his entire presidency. On January 22nd, he dealt the industry a blow with heavy tariffs on solar panels imported from foreign countries. It’s undeniably frustrating- so we’re fighting back. We’ve had enough. Join us.
On Thursday, February 8th we’re hosting a community meeting to discuss the real effects of the tariff and other aspects of Trump’s anti-solar agenda. We’re bringing businesses, community organizations and homeowners together to build a stronger movement. Work with your neighbors to get more solar up around the neighborhood, air your concerns and grievances about our current political situation, discuss ways to increase access to solar power here in Brooklyn, and #StickItToTheMan.
Who Should Attend
Community members that are concerned about the negative impacts of Trump’s Solar Tariff
