Solar Energy

Renewable Energy for Your Home & Business


About Us

CNY Solar, Inc. was founded in 2009.   From 2009 to the end of 2021, CNY Solar installed well over 1,000 solar systems in Central New York.  
CNY Solar, Inc. specializes in Renewable Energy.  Solar power is a great investment that pays you back day after day.  We have installed Solar Power Systems ranging from 1 kw to 240 kw for homes, farms, fire departments, municipal and businesses. 
In 2020 CNY Solar partnered with JA Electric out of Barneveld, NY. 


What Can Solar Power Do For Me?

Solar Power for your home can produce enough energy to run most of your home or even all of your home’s electrical needs.  Having Solar Electric panels will make your home more independent from the utility company.  

Will Solar Work on my home?

The installation of solar panels on your property can be done in several ways. We currently offer the following...
    - Asphalt shingle roof top mounts.
    - Standard metal roof mounts.
    - Standing seam metal roof mounts.
    - Ground mounted non-adjustable units.
    - Pole mounted manually adjustable units.
    - Flat rubber roof surfaces.

During a site assessment we will be able to determine the best application for solar on your property. 


How Big Should I Go?

The size of your Solar Electric System depends on a couple of factors.  First, what is your yearly electricity usage?  You can get that number from your utility bill.  Second, how much available south facing roof space do you have, or how much open ground space do you have if a ground mounted system is needed.  We are able to size the system up to 110% of your utility bill, as long as there is enough usable area to mount the system.

What About Snow?

Yes, we do get snow in the CNY/Greater Syracuse area, and a lot of it at times.  The panels will not be as efficient when covered in snow.  The good news is that the whole system is like a sheet of glass, and when the sun hits it they warm up and get quite slippery.  So the snow may not stay there for very long depending on the pitch of the roof. Additionally the systems are sized for the annual production and accommodate for lower production time periods.

What Incentives Offset the Cost of Solar?

Solar is a can't-miss investment, and one of the reasons is that the up-front cost of a solar system is directly offset by thousands in tax credits and incentives. New York State has some of the best incentives for solar energy systems in the country. We receive the incentive from NYSERDA that lowers the cost of our client’s systems and they receive the tax credits. It is important to act quickly, as more businesses and residential customers use the allotted solar funds. Additionally, for residential there is a 26% Federal tax credit and 25% State tax credit (capped at $5,000), and a 15 real property tax exemption.  For commercial there is a 26% Federal tax credit, and depreciation of the system can be claimed.
