Smart Energy Choices can help you figure out which option may work for you. They are not salespeople, and are here to help you every step of the way. You can also receive support from a partner non-profit, the Southern Tier Solar Works.

Solar for All is a program by NYSERDA that provides a free solar subscription to income-eligible residents to cover part of their electricity usage.

By participating in the program, customers will:

  • Receive monthly solar credits that can save you money by lowering your electric bill.
  • Lower your home’s carbon footprint and contribute to the economic growth of your community.
  • Join other New Yorkers who already take advantage of the benefits of clean energy.

There are three different ways to power your home with solar, with options for homeowners and renters. If you purchase a system, incentives for going solar typically cover up to 60-65% of a system's cost. But purchase is not required; there are options to purchase solar power generated locally at prices that are lower than the utilities', including a new free subscription program for income-eligible New York residents.
