Community solar gives everyone the opportunity to share in the benefits of clean solar energy without rooftop installations.
Community solar is ideal for homeowners with shaded rooftops, businesses that don’t own their own buildings, churches and other houses of worship that cannot take advantage of tax incentives because they do not pay taxes.
Here’s how it works:
Solar arrays are built on rural land; typically non-producing farm land and other “brown fields” like quarries. The electricity produced on the solar farm goes into the local utility grid.
  • Each month the utility credits the customers’ bills with the value of the solar electricity produced at the farm
  • Each month the customers pay the utility or owner for the solar credits.
  • Customers do not receive solar electricity directly from the solar farm . Rather, they benefit indirectly by increasing the amount of renewable energy the utility uses each month to supply all of its customers.
Solar Farms NY represents one of the largest owners of solar farms in the United States. Our job is to help customers take advantage of the solar electricity generated by these farms.
Solar Farms NY is NOT a retail electricity marketer that charges you for so-called “green energy.” With Solar Farms NY you receive:
  • Monthly solar credits from solar electricity produced in New York State, NOT wind credits from other states like Texas
  • An honest, straightforward benefits plan, NOT questionable promises about savings
  • Access to valuable benefits such as monthly discounts to local restaurants and retail chains and warranty repair service for your home electronics
No! Enrollment is free. Your monthly cost will vary, depending on the plan you select.
Our Guaranteed 5% Savings Plan has no monthly fee. Our Rate Cap Plans have a monthly fee of $2.95 for a two year term and $4.95 for a four year term. That comes to less than $.10 per day, $.26 per day, or less than $.50 per day. And you will have helped to offset your “brown energy” with electricity made from 100% New York sunshine!
You can move at any time and cancel at no cost. You can also take your Solar Benefits Package with you if you are moving within your utility service territory.
Let us know and we will confirm whether you are still eligible.

Photovoltaic panels use direct or indirect sunlight to generate electricity.  Panels are most effective in direct sunlight but still work even when the light is reflected or partially blocked by clouds.

You will never pay more and you could pay a lot less.  It depends on the plan you choose.  If you choose the 5% Discount plan you will save 5% on what your utility would have charged you for the electricity that is allocated to you, each and every month.

If you choose the Rate Cap plan, you will never pay more than the utility rate the day you enroll. If utility rates go up, you will save. If utility rates go down, your rate also goes down.

Each month you will see a credit on your utility bill for solar credits. The amount of your credit will be reflected on your monthly Solar Farms NY bill, along with your membership fee if applicable.
We offer the convenience of automatic payments that sends a pre and post bill notification for your monthly charges. Check payments are also available, but we prefer environmentally friendly paperless transactions.
Solar farms generate electricity from the sun’s rays. Solar power is a form of renewable energy, like the energy that comes from the wind and the motion of the waves. Renewable energy is free and available everywhere if we only take the trouble to capture it.
Renewable energy displaces fossil fuels like natural gas, coal, and fuel oil which reduces or eliminates carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide emissions that come from power plants.
Solar farms are not without their critics. In some states productive farmland could be covered with solar panels, preventing the growth of crops. We at New York Solar Farms prefer to support solar farms that are built on so-called “brown fields,” that is, land that is not productive farmland such as landfills, rocky soil, and quarry sites.
Simply put… clean energy generated with 100% NY sunshine!
Customers of Solar Farms NY can also receive other valuable benefits that we have secured for our customers:
  • Discounts on popular restaurants and retail brands, and/or
  • Exclusive discounts on household electronics.
Your electricity supplier will stay the same. If you are supplied by the utility you will continue to receive your electricity from the utility. If you are supplied by a third party energy service company or ESCO, you will continue to receive your electricity from the ESCO.
One bill will come from your utility with your Solar Credits. The other bill will come from Solar Farms NY.
You can avoid a second bill with AutoPay. Give us permission and we will debit your bank account each month for the value of the Solar Credits based on the Solar Benefits Plan chosen, plus your monthly Benefits Fee if applicable. This way you will save on another postage stamp.
Alternatively, you can give us a credit card number or send us a check.
Just drop us a line! We are available during business hours and, when we’re working late, after hours as well!
