New Yorkers are switching to solar 


Consistently ranking in the top-10 for thriving solar markets, New York has a substantial amount of solar generation across the state. Due to the state’s NY-SUN initiative, the Empire state has committed to a 10-year, $1 billion dollar budget for developing self-sustaining solar market for homes, businesses and communities. 

New York Home Solar Incentives1

The New York State Solar Equipment Tax credit helps reduce state tax payments by up to $5,000 or 25% off your total solar energy expenses, whichever is less. This incentive offers homeowners the choice to lease or buy, because you don't have to purchase a system to claim the credit and, if your tax liability isn't big enough to claim the entire credit during the first year, you can roll it over and claim the credit the following year.

Average Utility Costs in New York

On average, residents in New York pay an annual 2 percent increase on average, which makes leasing or buying a home solar system a great investment. When homeowners choose Sunnova home solar plans, on average, they can save 20 percent to 30 percent for electricity costs.

Net Netering2

New York has taken impressive steps to reform its energy systems and reduce carbon emissions in the state. Residents may be eligible for traditional net metering credits on their utility bill for any surplus electricity generated and sent back to the grid.
