The Lace Mill opened for residency this summer with a large solar array on its roof—the largest in the City. It also incorporates state-of-the art energy efficiency in every aspect of its design.
Solarize Kingston, a non-profit community program, is making solar electricity simpler and more affordable for homes and small businesses in Kingston this summer.
Homeowners and small business owners are invited to learn about their options for solar electricity, evaluate opportunities for leasing or purchasing systems, and find out how to reduce cost with state and federal incentives and the Solarize community discount.
Workshop participants will also meet the three highly-qualified local companies who are offering this discount to the community: Hudson Solar of Rhinebeck, SOLARgeneration of Kingston and NY State Solar Farm of Modena/Gardiner.
Folks from RUPCO will be present to answer your questions about low-cost financing which will likely result in monthly payments lower than your current utility bill.
RUPCO, the Hudson Valley region’s leading provider and advocate of quality, affordable housing and community development programs, also connects homeowners to NYSERDA’s free home energy audits and income-eligible grants for energy improvements.
Solarize Kingston and Solarize Hudson Valley are partners in RenewableNY’s effort to help New York State transition to a clean energy future. RenewableNY is a partnership including Sustainable Hudson Valley, Binghamton Regional Sustainability Coalition, Cornell Cooperative Extension-Tompkins County and Catskill Mountainkeeper, and is supported by NYSERDA under Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s NY-Sun initiative. NY-Sun will invest up to $1 billion in solar power through 2023 to expand solar installations statewide and help New York’s solar industry become self-sustaining.
