$60 Million Dedicated for Solar Energy on Long Island
As part of the statewide NY-Sun Initiative, a $60 million investment to support the Long Island solar industry's transition to PSEG Long Island has been announced. PSEG Long Island will partner with NYSERDA to locally implement the statewide NY-Sun program. NY-Sun Initiative is a collaborative effort among public-private entities who are all working toward advancing the use of solar power in New York State. NYSERDA will more than double the proposed NY-Sun Initiative allocation for the Long Island region from $28 million to $60 million. The maximum size of the photovoltaic system eligible for incentives will increase from 10 kW to 25 kW for residential homes and 100 kW to 200 kW for commercial businesses.
