SOLAR POWER INITIATIVE

Solar power is good for the environment and good for the pocketbook –
PSEGLI’s electricity is over 90% fossil fuel-based and expensive, unlike sunshine.
As a result, the Village of Thomaston is considering an initiative to make solar more affordable and accessible for its residents.

Owning a quality solar electricity system makes financial sense for a lot of Long Island residents – there are already over 10,000 residential systems on Long Island. Historically, the up-front investment has been the roadblock – not everyone has the cash to buy a system outright.
While leasing is an option, it isn’t always the most economical way for the consumer
to go solar, since the leasing company absorbs most of the tax credit incentives instead
of the homeowner.

Fortunately, NY State has implemented a subsidized loan program (Smart Energy Loan
by Energy Finance Solutions) to help finance residential solar electricity systems and
other energy improvements. If approved, the loan is good for up to $25,000 at 3.49% fixed interest for up to 15 years without placing a lien on the home.

This program has been a huge success, but a major rate increase is scheduled.
Come September 1st 2016, rates will increase to 4.99% for qualified low-income buyers or as much as 7.99% for those with higher incomes. If you or anyone you know might consider solar or any other energy improvement for your home in the next year, please take the time to complete the simple online application with the link below.

http://www.energyfinancesolutions.com/forhomeowners-apply-now

This is not a commitment to buy, but it will create a dated application and can ensure that you have access to the loan at current rates. You will then have one year to use it with a qualified contractor.  

Please stay tuned for more updates on the Thomaston solar initiative.
