In 2019, GreenSpark Solar installed a solar array on a capped landfill in the Village of Brockport. This 646 kW solar array offsets the electricity needs of multiple buildings, including Seymour Library, three fire stations, the visitor center, the Department of Public Works, municipal offices, the police station, and streetlights.
With many solar companies in our local market, you may wonder how to choose the right company for you and your home. With a quality solar array lasting from 25-35 years, choosing the right company and the best equipment is a critical decision. It seems daunting.
We’re one year in with the Inflation Reduction Act - HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CLIMATE BILL! The IRA has brought in $100 billion in United States (U.S.) solar and storage investment in the last year. SEIA (Solar Energy Industries Association) data indicates that the law’s subsidies for manufacturing and generation are greatly impacting the solar industry one year in.
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), the largest climate bill in U.S. history, has spurred significant solar industry investment since it became law in 2022. The IRA included big incentives for clean energy, including an Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for solar of 30% for ten years.

Solar is now powering our local area's schools, libraries, community centers, office buildings, municipalities, and more. New York State recognizes the importance of renewable energy and recently passed the 2023-2024 budget, which included significant climate provisions.
The NYS 2023-2024 budget recently passed with some climate provisions! A major one is the All Electric Buildings Act, which requires new construction buildings to be fully electric starting 2026 for smaller buildings and 2029 for larger ones.
As more homeowners and businesses evaluate going solar in light of Governor Hochul’s ambitious NYS climate goals, only some have the opportunity to install panels on their property. How can we collectively meet these goals when not all corporations or property owners have the infrastructure to switch to solar? This is where solar land hosting plays an important role to help benefit our communities.
Solar incentives related to affordable housing are incredible right now! The recent Inflation Reduction Act (also called the Climate Bill) includes significant funding that offers financial incentives to switch to solar power.
