If you’re a native New Yorker, you’ve probably seen more solar panels in the past few years than you’d ever seen before.
Solar panels power lights and signs on our highways. Solar arrays are going up in parking lots. Solar farms have been built on Long Island. And of course, solar systems are powering our communities from right on top of our homes.
There has never been a better time to turn to renewable energy, and solar power’s incredible growth across the country is a testament to this. New Yorkers are ahead of most in embracing solar energy, which should be no surprise as we pay high electric rates, yet receive abundant sunshine, and have access to some of the best solar incentives in the country.
Most of us are well aware of the benefits of solar energy — it’s great for the environment, it produces free electricity, and it adds value to your home. But there are dozens of solar contractors operating on as many business models. It can be hard to get a straight answer on how solar works, what incentives are available for you, and whether your project is moving forward in a timely manner.
That’s why NY State Solar assigns a program manager to every individual project. It’s the PM’s job to coordinate the various departments behind the scenes that work together to help you go solar. The PM will assess the solar potential of your home and give you a sense of what to expect. Throughout your experience with us, the program manager serves as your single point of contact to answer your questions, keep the project moving, and update you as important milestones are achieved.
