Solar Panels for Condos in NYC


Most NYC homeowners live in multi-family buildings, such as co-ops, condos and rental properties. Whether for shared common area demand only or for individual unit consumption, BSW can offer different solar models that match your board’s specific goals and priorities. And since multi-family residents and property owners can take advantage of the same local, state and federal tax credits available to single-family homeowners, solar panels for condos offer an impressive return while boosting overall property value.

Value

Solar incentives and sky high electricity rates make NYC one of the best solar markets in the country. Rebates and tax credits can cover up to 70% or more of gross costs for most projects.
