Solar Electric

NY-SUN Initiative - The NY-SUN Initiative is an investment of $1 billion to expand solar capacity in New York State, and includes an incentive component to decrease the costs of installing solar electric (PV) systems throughout the state. 

Free Community Solar SubscriptionsSolar-for-All offers eligible households the opportunity to subscribe to community solar at no cost. Program participants receive monthly credits on their electricity bills and there are no upfront costs, fees, or payments to participate.

Solarize Hudson Valley - Solarize Hudson Valley is a project that partners municipalities, community organizations and local solar installers to expand the market for solar electric energy in the Hudson Valley, specifically Ulster, Orange, Rockland, Sullivan, Dutchess and Putnam counties. A partnership between Sustainable Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountainkeeper, and funded through the NYSERDA Cleaner Greener Communities Program, this three year project will sponsor community workshops, solar home tours, and live installation demos to answer questions from homeowners about solar installation. 

Evergreen Solar - Evergreen Solar is a non profit group with a mission to educate homeowners and businesses about the economic and environmental benefits of PV solar. Their primary objective is to influence a greater number of solar panel installations on homes, schools, and businesses across the US and the rest of the world at an accelerating pace.
