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.
