Solar Options

There are several options for New York businesses to go solar. Find out which solar option is right for your business: property installation (rooftop or ground-mounted) or community solar.

Property Installation

Solar panels can be mounted on either the roof of your business or the ground, wherever conditions are best on your company’s property.

Rooftop solar offers you a way to harness the power of the sun through panels installed on the roof of your business or other buildings on your property.

Ground-mounted solar allows you to put panels wherever conditions on your property are best, particularly if you can’t or don’t want to put them on your roof. For an additional cost, ground-mounted panels can be installed with tracking capabilities to better harness the power of the sun.

Community Solar

If your business isn’t ideal for solar panels or you can’t install them on your property, community solar may be right for you. Community solar projects are a collective array of solar panels installed in a sunny, offsite location. Many community solar projects are becoming available across the State. Community solar allows you to access benefits from solar if you can’t install panels at your business. You’ll still get credits toward your electric bill by subscribing to a local clean energy project.
