Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Systems

A NY-Sun Program Solar PV technology uses sunlight to produce electricity. Individual solar cells, each made from semiconductor materials, connect together to form PV modules and produce electricity. These solar modules, in turn, combine and connect to form PV arrays.  Learn more about NYSERDA's Solar PV programs for small and large installations:

Solar Thermal (ST) Technology (Hot Water)

Solar thermal technology uses the sun's energy to heat water. A typical system consists of roof-mounted solar collectors, which heat water to a certain temperature. The hot water is then stored in your home's existing electric hot water tank, ready for you to use.
