Solarize CNY – Onondaga

What is Solarize Onondaga?

Solarize Onondaga is part of the Solarize CNY Program, helping to make Solar Power more accessible and affordable for our community. We invite you to learn more about how Solar Power can work for you, your family or your business, by attending one of our Workshops, or by viewing the additional information found on this site (click here ).

How does it Work?

By combining the purchasing power of our community, Solarize Onondaga has negotiated a reduced price for your Solar Installation. This reduced price, when combined with state and federal tax credits and state incentives, makes Solar Power more affordable than ever!

In Onondaga County, we have partnered with three Solar Panel Installers; Alternative Power Solutions, Halco Energy and Renovus Energy. They were chosen for their excellent reputations and quality equipment. By partnering with these Installers, we are offering you an excellent opportunity to “Make the Switch” to Solar Power.

How do I participate?

You can find out more about Solarize Onondaga and our Partner Installers by attending an upcoming workshop. They are free, and open to the public. RSVP for a Workshop at the location you wish to attend. Click here for a list of event locations.

Enroll Today.

If you are eager to move forward, enroll today for your free no-obligation site assessment. This will determine whether your site is suitable for Solar Power, and how much you can save if you “Make the Switch”. Click here to enroll.

Think solar is too expensive  and complicated?

Solarize CNY makes switching to solar easier and more affordable than ever. We are on a mission to combine the purchasing power of our community to save money and the planet. These free, public workshops will cover how solar works, and we’ll tell you how you can save money with our bulk purchasing program.

This will be a great opportunity to meet our chosen solar installers for Onondaga County, and our community solar experts will be on hand to answer all your questions about whether solar energy is right for your home or business. We’ll also tell you about other ways to save money and save energy, and how to take advantage of state and federal tax credits, subsidies and low-interest financing available for reducing your energy use and producing your own electricity.

Solarize CNY is a grassroots community solar initiative serving the counties of Cayuga, Cortland, Madison, Onondaga and Oswego. The program is available for both residential and commercial buildings, and we will be offering both direct purchase and leasing options.

We encourage attendees to bring a recent energy bill when you attend.

Solarize Permitting - NYSERDA was submitted by eric hanson on Mon, 20 Jul 2015

From NYSERDA regarding the Solarize Initiiative meeting on 17 Sept, 6-9pm, to Melanie Vilardi, Fabius Town Supervisor:

Yes, the Town of Fabius is still eligible for a $2,500 grant from NYSERDA if it adopts the NYS Unified Solar Permit, which is a model form that allows streamlined building and electrical permit review for solar PV.

Adoption of the permit is NOT a requirement to participate in our Solarize CNY campaign (http://solarizecny.org/) but it would be very helpful to residents and businesses in Fabius that may want to go solar.

Regarding Solarize CNY, it is a community-based campaign to lower the cost of solar PV through volume discounts. The CNY RPDB is selecting solar PV installers to serve our 5-county region (Cayuga, Cortland, Madison, Onondaga, and Oswego). These installers meet strict criteria for high-quality equipment and service, and they agree to offer a low price to customers who sign up through our campaign.

One of the tax credit deadlines is fast approaching. March 2nd is the deadline for 65 year old property owners of the 127thAssembly district to apply for property tax reduction. This is an income-limited exemption. Seniors must apply each year and submit federal or state tax returns each year to continue qualifying. The town assessors have the pertinent information for each town.

See this link for initial application: here

Other tax credits to review as you prepare your income tax return:

Earned Income Tax Credit has both a federal and a New York State table for credits.

Check out this link

Empire State Child Credit for families with young children. This credit is income-related.

Check it out here

The Child and Dependent Care Credit for people who pay for child care or those who live with and care for disabled family members.

In all there are over 10 tax credits that may take a bite out of your income taxes. Review these here

Many more credits apply to entrepreneurs, farmers and employers. Go to New York State Department of Taxation and Finance for information as tax season progresses.
