Solar Panels for Landmarked Homes in NYC


New York City has some of the most stringent historic preservation rules in the country, and Brooklyn is home to many neighborhoods with a high number of homes with landmark designation. For these homes solar installations must be completely invisible from all angles on street level, front and back.

Landmark status used to be considered disqualifying for solar. Not anymore. That’s because we’ve developed zero visibility installation methods, and have mastered the City’s complex landmarks design and application rules. As a result solar is not only possible on these formerly “no go” properties; but landmarked homes are now among our most common project types in Park Slope, Bedford Stuyvesant, Sunset Park and other historic neighborhoods.

Anatomy of a Solar System


Residential solar systems are surprisingly simple, consisting of only a few main components located on the roof and in the basement. BSW’s experienced installation team can complete a typical project in just one day with minimal disruption to your home and routine.
