SOLAR PANEL INSTALLATION IN QUEENS

New York City is one of the best solar markets in the country, which is largely thanks to the many sustainably-minded homeowners in Queens wanting to reduce their carbon footprints.

Home solar is booming in NYC’s largest borough, and it’s no surprise why. With homeowners paying more money to Con Edison every month and rich solar incentives available to homeowners, it makes perfect sense to go solar in Queens.

Founded in Brooklyn with Queens residents in mind, Brooklyn SolarWorks are NYC’s residential solar panel installation experts.

Solar Installation for Queens Homes

Housing stock in Queens is diverse. Many neighborhoods appear suburban in style with detached, pitched roof homes, but there are also many areas whose buildings are attached and flat roofed.

While other solar installers have catered to pitched and sloped roof Queens homes, those with flat roofs have been neglected. Oftentimes, flat roofs have obstructions like skylights and hatches, and they also have to comply with FDNY fire paths, which can pose difficulties for solar design.

But that’s where we come in. Contrary to popular belief, installing solar panels on flat roofs is not only possible in Queens, but also incredibly beneficial for homeowners. Regardless of your roof type, we’ll make sure it reaches its solar potential.

Solar Panel Installation Cost in Queens

Unfortunately, some solar companies in the area lack the specialization required to provide accurate solar quotes for homes in New York City.

Looking into solar installation pricing in any other area of the country (even in other parts of Long Island or New Jersey) won’t give you the best idea of what your finances will look like for a rooftop solar array here – not only because pricing is more variable in New York City, but also because we have some of the richest incentive offerings available to homeowners.
