New York Power Authority (NYPA) and the village of Freeport, Long Island are offering great solar incentives right now. They will be spending a total of $125,000 on rebates for Solar Electric (PV) systems. This is a wonderful opportunity for those residents in Freeport to take advantage of. Especially those who have great roof space and low amounts of shade on their homes. Do you think you have a home that has great potential for solar panels? Then you should keep reading. These solar incentives are so good that they are only going to be able to fund up to 5 houses/businesses max and for a limited time, August 6th is the deadline to get your proposal for solar on your roof in. They are offering a $4/watt rebate up to a max of $40,000 per location for a 10kW system. That means you can get an extra $40,000 rebate when you install solar panels on your home, that’s not including the New York State tax credit or the Federal Tax Credit for solar. These savings together add up to making your electricity investment affordale. I call it an investment because when you add up all the months that you go without an electric bill to pay, you will see the incredible amount of money that you have in your pocket that you can use for your new car, house, education, charity, fundraiser, wedding, dream vacation, and I can keep going. Freeport Electric is taking a great initiative for our future, and we should all be doing this. Because we cannot keep depending on foreign countries for our energy, and the only way to stop that is by producing our own electricity. Freeport is different than the other towns, cities, and villages on Long Island in that it is one of the very few places that produces its very own electricity. The other two towns that I know of that produce their own electricity are Rockville Center 11570 and Greenport 11994. Long Island mainly gets its electricity from LIPA. All the details are in this power point. If you have any questions just ask. Comments on this program will be appreciated. Thanks for checking out my post.
