Whether you reside among St. George’s, found refuge on lush Emerson hill, or settled among West Brighton’s quirky crowd, you’ve carved out a corner of paradise in this oft-underrated borough. You’re part of a close knit community that takes pride in its history. Adding home solar panels in Staten Island makes a statement that you’re here to stay, and choosing to spend your money where it matters.
New Yorkers suffer from their share of blackouts due to bad weather conditions. Just last March a severe thunderstorm affected New York and other states - leaving 10 million without electricity. And before that Hurricane Sandy left millions without power, too. Keep your food cold, your lights on, and enjoy greater peace-of-mind during a power outage with our Brightbox™ solar battery storage service.
After seeing firsthand the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy, New York’s Governor Cuomo began an ambitious quest to rebuild, strengthen, and revitalize the state’s energy system through his strategy: Reforming the Energy Vision (REV). Included in this strategy is a state incentive for residents of New York to acquire solar battery storage as an addition to their solar systems. The details of this incentive are yet to be released but are expected to hit the market in 2019.
Stay tuned for how this New York solar battery storage incentive can play a role in your solar decision.
On top of all the savings you’ll generate from your roof, Staten Island residents are eligible for local, state and federal tax breaks that could also save you thousands in your first four years of ownership. Add in cheap, stable energy rates for the next 20 years and solar is a no-brainer for Staten Islanders. Don’t wait- it’s time to get with the solar program in Staten Island.
New York might not be known for its weather, but here’s what you might not know - Staten Island solar panels capture plenty of sunshine. That sunshine is already powering more than 193,000 New York homes1 . Last year, Tri-State families installed nearly 800 megawatts of solar power on their homes - double that of sunny Arizona2.
Sunrun is the leading residential solar power provider, with hundreds of thousands of customers across the country. But our Staten Island solar team is about more than the numbers - our sales reps and installers grew up across the Island and are a part of your community. We care about Staten Island, because we’re a Staten Island solar company.
