Why Go Solar in Central New York?
In New York State, solar has grown an impressive 795% in the past five years, according to NYSERDA the state energy and research authority. Solar popularity in the Empire State has been driven by its many benefits:
- Affordable alternative to the Utility
- Promise of energy independence
- Environmental preservation
- Increased property value
But did you know that New York is one of the best states in America to get solar?
It’s true. New York offers better incentives for solar than many sunnier states. At the same time, in central New York there is plenty of sun through the year in places like Albany, Syracuse, Utica and Saratoga Springs for homes and businesses to get 100% of their power from solar.
Both homes and businesses can qualify for several incentives that can cut the cost of a solar system by over 50%. Check out our solar incentives page for a list of the support for solar from state and federal programs in New York.

The Construction Advantage
Here’s another way we can help. As an experienced construction company, we can give you a higher quality solar installation at a better price.
Every solar installation is different. And when we run into unexpected issues with roofing or wiring, we can often solve them in-house. That can mean better integration with the solar panels. It can also mean saving the costs of bringing in another contractor.
