Houses of worship take advantage of program that helps them afford solar power


Terrific Newsday coverage of our PowerUp Solar Long Island program and partnership with Resonant Energy which is bringing low-cost #solarto houses of worship and nonprofits across LI. Our campaign was selected by the U.S. Department of Energy for support under their Sunshot Prize program. Thanks to First Baptist Church of RiverheadShelter Island Presbyterian ChurchBellmore Presbyterian Church, & Presbytery Of Long Island for undertaking this with us. This wouldn’t have happened without your tireless leadership throughout the process. Thank you to SUNation Solar Systems for your belief in our program and competitive offerings when we put the projects out to bid.

“Solar panel installations have been cost-prohibitive for many local churches, synagogues and mosques, whose donation-based budgets can make coming up with a down payment a challenge, and whose tax-exempt status prevents them from taking advantage of tax breaks. Now, a program — funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot initiative, offering discounted install rates through bulk bidding, low-interest financing and agreements allowing a third party to take advantage of tax credits — is making solar affordable.”
