NYSERDA's Solar PV program

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is providing a cash incentive for the installation of grid-connected solar electric/solar photovoltaic systems by installers who have signed an eligible installer agreement and have shown technical competence in the field. The incentives will cover 25-35% of total installation costs for residential systems of 7kW or less, not-for-profit systems of 25kW or less and commercial systems of 50kW or less.

A total of $132 million is available through the New York State Renewable Portfolio Standard and will be given out on a first-come first-serve basis through December 15, 2015. NYSERDA hopes the program will spur a state total of 82 MW of solar electric power.
