Going Solar and Staying Connected
When you create and store your own renewable energy with solar panels and a home battery in New York, you stay connected to the electric grid.1 But this is a good thing. Staying connected to the grid with a home solar system means that if, for any reason, your solar battery isn’t fully charged to give you the energy you need to power your home at night, you can still use your devices and appliances as you normally do.
Besides, if the panels on your roof produce more energy than you need, with New York’s Value of Distributed Energy Resources (VDER) program, the excess is sent back to the grid, and you receive a cash credit that can roll over into your future billing cycles.2 This gives more control over your home electricity and the price you pay for it.
