Solar electric systems convert the infinite energy from the sun into electricity even on cold or cloudy days. Electricity generated by solar electric systems does not create noise, air, or water pollution, unlike electricity generated by fossil fuels.
Solar panels can be mounted on a roof or the ground of homes, businesses, schools, hospitals, government buildings, and many other community organizations. Incentives and financing options to reduce installation costs are available through the NY-Sun Incentive Program. Federal and State tax credits may also apply.
