HOW DOES SOLAR WORK?

BUT WHAT ABOUT AT NIGHT?

New York State currently participates is Net Metering for all "mass market" customers which includes residential and small commercial who don't have a demand charge. 

Net metering allows consumers who generate some or all of their own electricity to use that electricity, (or electric credits), anytime instead of when it is generated.  That means the extra power that you don't use during the day when the sun is out you use at night as free credits from the utility company for producing energy during the day. 

Our Solar Experts will work with you to size your system appropriately so you can take full advantage of net metering and offset as much energy as you like. 

SOLAR INCENTIVES

New York State is one of the best states for solar incentives, making it affordable for everyone to go solar.

Residential Solar Incentives:

  • 30% Federal Tax Credit on the gross cost of your system, no cap!

  • 25% State Tax Credit (capped at $5000)

  • $0.35 off per watt, through a NYSERDA grant

(we take care of all this paperwork for you)

That means more that 55% of your system is paid for!

New York State is also helping those with Low-to-Moderate Income make the change, too, with the 

Affordable Solar Program

Additional incentives are offered to some homeowners who qualify for this program, doubling the NYSERDA grant from $0.35 per watt to $0.70 per watt!

COMMERCIAL & NON-MASS MARKET SOLAR

There have been some major changes in the solar industry in the past year.  While Commercial & Non-Mass Market customers used to take advantage of Net Metering, New York State has moved to the VDER method for these projects. 

Instead of getting credits applied to your bill which brings down the amount of kWh used, VDER will apply a monetary credit that is deducted from monthly statements.

The amount of the monetary credit is based on several factors such as the offset of demand, carbon emission savings, the amount of electricity produced by the system, as well as its strategic location. 

Luckily, we have great Solar Experts who can guide you through this process stress-free!
