NYSERDA makes implementing solar easier and more affordable by supporting locally-organized community outreach aimed at getting a critical mass of area homes and businesses to install solar and obtain competitive pricing, thereby lowering the cost. Historically, Solarize Campaigns lower the cost of solar 10 to 20 percent.
Southern Adirondacks for Solar has selected designated solar installers using a thorough pre-qualification process. Residents and businesses who sign up for solar installations between May and October 2018 will be able to take advantage of group rates below market prices.
The Southern Adirondacks for Solar Solarize Campaign is supported by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) under Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s NY-Sun Initiative. NY-Sun will invest up to $1 billion in solar power through 2023 to significantly expand solar installations across the state, ultimately transforming New York’s solar industry to become self-sustaining.
