Our Commitment to People and the Planet
At Solar Liberty, we’ve been championing clean energy since 2003. As consumers, investors, and regulators are focusing on the impact of business on the climate and communities, we’re proud to be decades ahead of the game. Our commitment to Environmental, Social, and Governance was built into our company from the start, and we are dedicated to operating on these critical principles as we continue to grow.
Solar Liberty’s Environmental Impact
As a solar company, we’re in the business of educating individuals and organizations on how solar power can help reduce humanity’s outsize impact on the climate. Every switch to solar energy helps offset some of the carbon emissions created by electricity production, whether it’s a few panels on the roof of a home or a commercial-scale solar farm. Solar Liberty has installed over 4,000 solar photovoltaic systems, with 700,000 producing more than 170 megawatts of solar power — and that number will keep growing.
Our projects have a measurable environmental impact, with our largest installations offsetting thousands of tons of carbon monoxide per year. We’re proud to work with major New York organizations to bring clean energy to our communities. The following are just a few of the examples of projects that helped New York make major strides in the switch to climate-friendly energy production.
- Monroe County: 36,500 panels offset 12,470 tons of carbon monoxide.
- PSEG Long Island: 34,272 panels offset 11,329 tons of carbon monoxide.
- City of Rochester Landfill: 7,866 panels offset 2,300 tons of carbon monoxide.
With each project, we advance environmental consciousness by empowering individuals and organizations to measure their contribution to cleaner energy.
Taking Social Responsibility
As the number one solar installer in New York, we take our responsibility to give back to our community seriously. We are committed to fair-labor practices, sourcing the majority of our engineers and staff from New York institutions, and providing ample opportunities for blue-collar workers to develop the skills needed to transition to solid green-collar careers.
Local Leaders With Global Reach
While Solar Liberty works every day to be an asset to our local community, we also use our expertise to improve the lives of people across the globe. Solar Liberty Foundation was established to bring solar-based electrification to people living in poverty. To date, we have completed projects in multiple countries in Africa, providing health clinics, schools, orphanages, and individuals with water filtration, cooking devices, and other essentials to transform lives.
With your help, we can create a brighter future overseas and here at home.
Promoting Exceptional Governance
We started this organization with a commitment to integrity and transparency in our operations. Our dedication to transparency and consistent regulatory compliance helps us streamline the installation process for every customer.
