Cost of Solar in NYC
New York City is one of the strongest solar markets in the country, and there are two factors that are driving this—a high cost of power and a strong incentive program. These make the cost of solar versus grid power extremely affordable in the city.
The national average cost of power is around 11 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh). However, in New York City, we pay more than twice that. We pay two sets of charges in New York. One is for supply, which is the actual energy that is being produced at the generation plant, from sources like coal, natural gas, and nuclear power. And the other is for delivery, which is the price you are paying to have the electricity shipped to your home.
