New York Solar-Electric Incentives

You may be eligible to receive incentives to help fund the installation of photovoltaic systems through the New York Energy $martSM Solar-Electric System Incentive Program. 

To qualify, your system must be:
  • 25 kW or smaller
  • Connected Orange & Rockland's electric distribution system
  • Installed by an eligible contractor

By combining this program with other New York Energy $martSM programs, you could save 40 to 70 percent of the cost of purchasing and installing a solar-electric system.

If your system is 25 kW or smaller, excess electricity you generate may be sold to O&R through a private solar credit agreement arrangement. For details, visit NYSERDA.

Information about funding programs for photovoltaic systems larger than 15 kW may be found at New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA)—Power Naturally
