New York Solar Incentives

Visit our blog to find out more information about New Jersey solar incentives.

The Federal solar tax credit allows homeowners or business owners to claim 26% of the cost of their solar installation.

The solar energy system equipment credit is 25% of the cost of installing your home’s solar power system up to $5,000. It is available to those living in New York State.

Operated by NY-Sun, the Megawatt block incentive assigns incentives to the three regions in New York State. The dollar-per-watt structure is how those with a solar project are offered a discount, with the highest being $1 per watt and the incentive gradually being lowered to $0.15 per watt.

The three regions are:

  • Upstate
  • Long Island
  • New York City and Westchester county

Solar equipment is exempt from sales tax in New York.

Having solar in New York will not increase your property taxes in New York state. The value added by solar projects will not have any impact on how much property taxes you pay because the system is exempt.

Net metering is still offered by utility companies in New York. It has helped residents and businesses save more money with solar panels. All homes enrolled in the program are credited for any extra energy created by their solar panels that is not used onsite at the time of generation.

Homes with a net metering agreement will be liable to pay a Customer Benefits Charge (CBC) from 2022.

The Value Stack is a system of incentives for distributed energy resources such as solar power, and it helps New York State maintain reliable electricity rates. The VDER or value-based dispatch mechanism works by comparing when solar projects provide their generated watts to the grid with what’s needed at any given time – like during peak hours.

Your guide to going solar in New York State

  • Save money on your electric bill
  • Energy Independence
  • Low payback period
  • Protection from power outages
  • An excellent long term investment
  • Increase your home’s value

Yes, New York gets an average of 3.79 hours of peak sun. Still, this number can vary depending on whether you’re using a fixed solar panel or tilted one to maximize output at different times of the year.

The direction your solar panels face and the efficiency of your solar panels can significantly impact how much energy your system can produce.

To get the most out of your solar panels, it is recommended that you talk to a top solar installation company to ensure that the system is installed correctly to maximize your savings.

The average residential customer spends just under $1,400 per year on their electric bill. We aim to offset 100% of your electric bill by switching you over to solar through meticulous planning.

You will receive two bills; one from your electric utility company for being connected to the grid (usually a few dollars!) and another from SunPower for your solar. Together, this will instantly lower your electricity bills by over 40%.

Find out how much you can save by switching to solar.

Going solar in New York has never been more affordable! Owning a solar system means that you will get the lowest electricity rates, protected from price hikes for the lifetime of your contract.

The cost of going solar depends on various factors, such as the type of system you choose, your home’s location, and if you choose to pay for the solar installation with cash, a solar lease, or a loan. Also, when you factor in the solar incentives available in New York, the cost of the solar energy system is dramatically reduced.

According to Solar Reviews, the average payback period is around 3.5 years. This solar payback period is one of the lowest in the country, and it is due to the incentives available that reduce the cost of solar panel installation.

Contrary to what solar companies tell their customers, going solar is not free. Installing a solar system has several costs associated with it, including installation, permitting, and equipment.

However, New York solar incentives are in abundance, which will drastically cut down your overall cost.

Free solar should not be confused with ‘pay nothing upfront’ offers which many solar installers, including us, offer in New York.

Yes, a federal tax credit of 26% is available to those who install solar on their property.

Yes, you can sell the excess electricity your solar panels generate back to the grid in exchange for credits on your utility bill.

To take advantage of net metering, you will need a solar system and a net metering agreement with your utility company.

The electrical grid is under immense pressure to deliver due to an increase in demand. In fact, the second most common cause for electric-utility power outages was due to overdemand, only just behind weather/falling trees.

According to NY Post, 130,000 people in the tri-state area were left without power when Hurricane Ida hit. Unfortunate events like this can have detrimental effects on those who rely on electricity from the grid. Because of this, an increasing number of homeowners in New York are considering adding solar battery storage to their home improvement projects.

We recommend that you consider going partially off-grid with solar battery storage because they help keep your home connected when grid power isn’t readily available. Solar batteries act as an energy bank for your home by storing excess energy that is collected during the day and returning it to your home’s appliances when you need it the most.

This technology enables you to take advantage of peak-time utility rates, saving you money on your monthly utility bills.

Installing solar panels on your roof can also be an excellent investment for your home. Research by Zillow shows that adding photovoltaic (PV) solar systems to your home will increase the value of your home by 4.1%. This is because solar provides increased financial security in lowering or eliminating electric bills and generating life savings that are hard to beat with any other type of investment.

Solar Gleam Energy has partnered with SunPower to bring you top-of-the-range solar panels. The solar panels we install in New York are SunPower X-series, one of the most energy-efficient panels available on the market today. In addition, these solar panels provide the lowest degradation rate at just 0.25% per year, working at optimal efficiency for more than 25 years.

Conventional solar panels tend to degrade by 0.5% per year, which poses a problem to the integrity of the solar system as most homeowners invest in solar to save or make a return on investment. If you have lost 20% of your panels’ effectiveness over 25 years, your return on investment has been cut short. SunPower guarantees that your system will produce a minimum of 92% of its DC power output at the end of 25 years.

Yes, we offer commercial solar in New York. Solar Gleam Energy is a cut above the rest when providing clean and reliable power to businesses looking for affordable and dependable energy rates.

We have partnered with two solar companies to bring you reliable, affordable energy rates.

WeSolar CSP powered by ASC

WeSolar CSP technology is a game-changer. It produces 3x the heat and two-thirds of power on only 20% of the land required for traditional Parabolic Trough or Solar Tower energy generation. ASC technology also requires only a third of the space solar PV requires. As a result, investors in commercial solar will benefit from significantly lower CAPEX and operational costs.

WeSolar CSP builds modular and scalable solar solutions. 

This allows them to effectively and affordably power industrial and microgrid projects from as small as 30kW to as large as 50MW. In addition, this technology’s cost-effectiveness and reliability make it an excellent source of renewable energy.

SunPower

We partnered with SunPower to get you the most innovative solar energy solution customized to your specific needs. Regarded as one of the best solar companies in the US for over 35 years, the process of going solar for corporations and institutions has never been more straightforward.

According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), more than 2989 megawatts (MW) of solar capacity has been installed in New York. This is enough to power more than 483,655 homes in the state. A total of 149,041 solar installations have been recorded.

Kayla was the sole reason why we chose Sunpower. She is absolutely the best in what she does. We did contact other solar panel companies, but their customer service was horrible and made us worried what the rest of the process would be like. Kayla is knowledgeable and cares to explain and follow up every step of the way. Our panels are up and running and she is still checking in on us to ensure that we are 100% happy. I can’t recommend Kayla enough. Trust that she will get the best deal possible while being very resourceful. Thank you Kayla, SunPower is lucky to have you!

This was a great experience from beginning to end with Giovanni from Sun Power. Giovanni is a SUPERMAN in solar business. He came from afar to explain to me what I was getting into. Other solar businesses were of no comparison and called them out for not helping me the way they were supposed to. Giovanni proved to have the much better deal and proved to be the better expert. If you are thinking of going solar, try Giovanni and I promise you, you will not regret it. If I could give more than five stars to Giovanni and his team, I would. Thank you Giovanni for this great experience. God bless you in your endeavors.
