Rebate Information for PPAs or Lease Agreements

  • The incentives vary depending on the systems size, type of equipment installed, panel orientation, and shading. The rebate is calculated using the Expected Performance Based Buy-down (EPBB) method which allows us to incentivize more efficient and optimally sited solar systems. The EPBB is an up-front incentive payment (rebate) for new grid connected solar PV systems and inverters based on the expected output of the system compared to an ideal solar system installation.

  • Rebates are on a first-come, first-serve basis pending application pre-approved by us.
  • Must be a residential electric customer located in our service territory.
  • Our rebates are valid only for new grid-connected PV systems.

Federal Tax Incentives

  • 30% Residential Solar Investment Tax Credit through December 31, 2016
  • No cap on credit for qualified solar electric property installations installed after 12/31/08. 

New York State Incentives

  • 25% Residential Tax Credit on net costs for a solar electric system
  • Maximum credit = $5,000
  • Sales tax FREE on PV equipment purchases in New York State



* PPA and leasing companies are able to take advantage of state and federal tax benefits that are not available to you as a homeowner, and therefore we offer a higher rebate for those residential customers who choose to purchase-to-own their solar PV system.
