NYACK, N.Y. – Residents of Rockland County can still get in on significant savings on solar – but not for long. The temporary group rates available through Solarize Nyack Plus, a program designed to make high-quality solar electric systems exceptionally affordable for Rockland homes and businesses, will expire on June 30.
“We are so excited to be helping to bring top-quality solar into the mainstream with the competitive pricing of Solarize Nyack Plus,” says Douglas Hertz, president of designated Solarize Nyack Plus installer Sunrise Solar LLC in Briarcliff, N.Y. “In our many years of installing solar systems throughout the Northeast, we’ve seen the ‘typical’ solar customer evolve from the early adopters, who wanted the latest and greenest technology for their homes at any cost, to the savvy homeowners of today, for whom the economics are a much bigger part of the equation. Luckily, the economics are fantastic.”
In fact, local Solarize campaigns have historically lowered the cost of solar installations by 10 to 20 percent – and that’s just the beginning of the financial benefits of going solar, said Hertz. “Homes that generate their own energy through solar not only reduce their monthly electric bills -- they permanently hike-proof those bills, so those savings continue to grow,” Hertz explains.
Hudson Valley resident Caitlin Fry of Dobbs Ferry is one of several area residents who have seen the benefits of the Solarize program. “Installing solar panels was a great way to upgrade our home and do our part for the environment," said Fry. "I’d recommend the program to anybody who is interested in making our community more sustainable. We all need to do what we can to preserve our environment and set an example for the next generation.”
Rockland County residents and businesses who want to take advantage of these special rates must sign up for solar installations by June 30 by calling 1-866- 205-2999 or visiting Sunrise Solar's website .
