Community Solar comes to central NY


IMG_9400Renovus Solar is bringing community solar to central New York, with plans to provide over 12,000 households access to solar power in the coming year. Community solar opens the doors to virtually anyone who pays an electric bill and wants their power to come from a clean, local solar source. Centralized solar farms, located on sites with perfect solar resource, can serve hundreds of households – without the restrictions that have previously prevented people from installing solar on their rooftops.

For years, the environment for solar has been improving, with exponential growth in installed solar in the past year. Costs have fallen dramatically, Federal Tax incentives have been extended, and now landmark community solar legislation in New York is setting the stage for a mass adoption of solar statewide. With community solar, many customers are able to switch to solar for less than they currently pay for electricity.

Renovus Solar has been a leader in the local solar industry for the past 13 years. In partnership with the nation’s leading provider of community solar software, they’ve created a seamless platform that makes switching to clean, local solar power simple. The new online portal at offers everyone an immediate estimate of how much they can save with solar.

We’re hosting a series of meetings that introduce the new community solar option throughout the Central New York region in the coming weeks. These events are free and open to the public. They’re a platform for community engagement and a place to have questions answered. Everyone interested in switching to solar is encouraged to attend. For more information visit
