Solar for All
With Solar for All from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), income-eligible households can subscribe to community solar at no cost. Program participants receive monthly credits on their electricity bills—up to $15 a month—and there are no upfront costs, fees, or payments to participate.
Participation does not affect any existing electric bill credit or reduction you have. You may already be eligible for Solar for All if you participate in HEAP (Home Energy Assistance Program), SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), EmPower New York, or another electric bill assistance program.
Making small changes in your daily activities can add up, lowering energy bills and enhancing home comfort. With our energy savings tips, you can start making changes now.
