What is Solar Schuyler?

Marks Barn

It all started when...

A group of Schuyler County residents heard about a community grant program being run by New York State's Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to help promote solar energy. Seeing the success of programs like Solar Tompkins, those volunteers came together to help create Solar Schuyler and run an incredibly successful campaign that helped 50 residents and businesses 'Go Solar' - more than doubling the amount of installed solar capacity in Schuyler County.

Those volunteers have continued to work tirelessly to educate their friends, family and neighbors of the benefits and considerations of solar photovoltaic panels (Solar PV). Our goal is to create educated consumers who know how solar works and whether it is the right choice for their families.

Our next campaign will launch in January 2017 with vetted solar installers and a series of events and workshops designed to help residents of Schuyler county learn more about solar energy and make the process as easy as possible for those that decide to join their neighbors in going solar!
