New York!

Find out how much you can save by going solar in New York.

New York has a considerable amount of solar potential and has consistently been in the top 10 US solar markets. Pursuant to Governor Cuomo’s stated commitment to the NY-SUN initiative, the New York Public Service Commission (PSC) recently announced a 10-year $1 billion commitment to developing a self-sustaining solar market in New York State. The program will lead to 3,000MW of PV installations across New York State by 2022. The state has other policies in place to promote solar investment, including a feed-in tariff through Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) and net metering. Through its Reforming the Energy Vision docket, the Commission reviewing the regulatory and market environment needed to encourage a more efficient electricity system, including increased amounts of distributed generation.

Long Island Solar Farm was completed in 2011 by developer BP Solar. This photovoltaic project has the capacity to generate 32 MW of electricity– enough to power over 5,264 New York homes
Several large retailers in New York have gone solar including Anheuser-Busch, Bed Bath and Beyond and Dr. Frank’s Vinifera Wine Cellars. Owens Corning has installed one of the largest such installations with 2 MW of solar capacity at their location in Feura Bush.
At 2 MW, Argos Solar LLC in Seneca is among the largest solar installations in New York. Completed in 2015, this photovoltaic project has enough electric capacity to power more than 329 homes. There are so many reasons that solar is becoming an energy option of choice for financially and environmentally savvy consumers and commercial enterprises. Other benefits to consider:

  • Reduced electric costs
  • Higher resale value for properties
  • Investment with guaranteed rate of return that increases as the cost of living goes up
  • Guilt free use of electricity for greater comfort, efficiency and convenience
  • Contributing to a cleaner, healthier planet.

QUICK FACTS

The 2.4-gigawatt Robert Moses Niagara hydroelectric power plant is the fourth-largest hydroelectric power plant in the United States. In 2015, New York produced more hydroelectric power than any other state east of the Rocky Mountains.
In 2015, New York had the eighth-highest average electricity prices in the United States, down from the fourth-highest price in 2014.
To curb air pollution, in 2012 New York became the first northeastern state to require that all heating oil be ultra-low sulfur diesel.
To ensure reliability, New York regulators require electricity-generating units that can burn either fuel oil or natural gas to be ready to switch to fuel oil if natural gas supply is constrained.
The NY-Sun initiative aims to install 3,000 megawatts of small-scale (less than 200 kilowatts) solar photovoltaic facilities by 2023, and more than 15% of that target was installed by the end of 2015.
