Solar Panels in Rochester and Buffalo NY

Solar Energy Saves Money Rochester NY



There is a popular misconception here in Rochester that there is not enough sunlight to make solar profitable in Central New York. The answer is YES there is enough sunlight for to make solar profitable. Rochester does rather well when it comes to the amount of sunlight we get. Hold on. I know what your thinking. Yes we have gloomy months. November and December are down right oppressive, January is not much better.
What most people don’t know is that once we get into February the amount of daily sunlight doubles and as a bonus, Solar panels are much more efficient when the weather get cold and we all know we have plenty of cold weather. The Gloomy months of November and December taint our view of how much sunlight we actually get. Western New York typically does very well late February through late October. In the summer months typical homes will produce excess amounts of energy creating credits to carry over to the next months. In the early fall and spring offsetting most of your electrical usage, and in the winter your solar system will offset a great deal of your electricity usage. The graph to the right shows an example of a local installation and what kind of savings they will experience over the next 20 years. Most of Rochesters pays Rochester Gas and Electric an average of 11 cents per kwh. National Grid customers pay over 11 cents per hour. This past winter prices peaked to over 16 cents per kwh just for supply not to mention the National Gird’s delivery cost. Solar systems have the advantage of a low and consistent rate that never rises like Utility prices. Solar system can have as low as 3 cents a kwh price with as little as a 6 year pay back. We at Rochester Solar and Wind will be blunt and honest about your ability to save money. We believe that it is better to tell a customer that they have too many trees or have to little space or that their home faces the wrong direction than take their money and have an unhappy customer.
