Save big on your electric bill in NYC with solar

Did you know that you can make the switch to solar for $0 out of pocket? From day one, you can lower your electric bill at a rate that never goes up, receive $5,000 from New York State, and save thousands on your New York City property taxes. Sounds too good to be true, right? The reality is that if you have an electric bill, you are paying a small charge every month that helps offset the cost of homeowners and business owners making the switch to solar. Qualified homes are eligible to cash in and start saving with $0 out of pocket, because New York State is paying thousands of dollars on your behalf from this fund. Time to take control of your electric bill!

Did you know?

Like most things, electricity in NYC is very expensive. The national average cost of power is around 11 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) but in New York City, we pay more than twice that. The problem is that we have an outdated infrastructure in NYC, that requires millions of dollars every year to maintain, not to mention rising costs of labor. As high as your electric costs are today, they will only continue to go higher. Electric rates historically rise anywhere from 3-6% per year. With solar, you can hedge against rising costs through a fixed, predictable cost of power, to save you tens of thousands of dollars. Say goodbye to high electric costs.

What’s in it for me?

Start saving from day one

Pay nothing out of pocket and immediately lower your monthly electric cost — it’s that simple. We will design, permit, install and maintain your system with $0 out of pocket. As soon as we turn the system on, you start saving money. Find out how.

Resale Value

Houses with solar sell faster and for more money. According to the New York Times, every 3.6 kW increased the value of a home by roughly $15,000. Find out how.


Lock in your savings

Utility prices continue to rise; look at the latest from ConEdison. Solar allows you to have a low, predictable cost of power for decades to come. Do you know anywhere else that can guarantee your cost of anything for the next few decades? Didn’t think so. Find out how.

Go green

For most people, making the switch to solar is also about the green in your back pocket. It feels pretty good to know that for every system we install, we are offsetting about 5,000 pounds of carbon dioxide every year. So making the switch to solar is a great way to save money as well as do your part to reduce our environmental impact. Find out how.


They’re basically throwing money at you to do this. An average homeowner receives $5,000 from New York State and between $3,000-$6,000 from New York City just for installing the panels. These programs don’t last forever, so cash in while you can. Find out how.

Peace of mind

With guaranteed performance and no-cost maintenance, your biggest worry will be whether the sun rises tomorrow! With solar, you know exactly what your cost is, unlike the utility company who can raise your rates at a moment’s notice. Here’s to no more crazy summer electric bills. Find out how.

I love my SunPower system. I am saving thousands of dollars this year, and it cost me absolutely nothing to have the system installed. This was a no brainer for my family to lower our electric cost. Venture made it easy — I couldn’t be happier with my decision to go solar.
