New York residents are eligible for state and federal solar incentives that could also save you thousands in your first four years of ownership. Add in plummeting solar prices1 and cheap, stable solar energy rates for the next 20 years, and solar panels and battery storage are a no-brainer for New Yorkers.
Solar Panels in New York Keep The Lights Bright
New York might not be known for its weather, but here’s what you might not know - New York sunshine is plenty strong for solar. New York solar and battery storage is already powering more than 193,000 New Yorker’s homes.2 Last year, Tri-State families installed nearly 800 megawatts of solar power on their homes - double the solar installations of sunny Arizona.3
And thanks to initiatives like Governor Cuomo’s Reforming the Energy Vision4 and the nation’s second best solar tax credits,5 more New Yorkers than ever are going solar and saving big.
