Frequently, the total of state and federal incentives add up to over 60% of the price of the system which can be purchased upfront, through a low-interest loan, or through a monthly lease payment that is often less than what you are paying the utility today. There are a variety of both state and federal financial programs offered to reduce the initial costs of installing a solar energy system. Taitem is familiar with the intricacies of applying for these grants and rebates and we ensure that our customers are able to take full advantage of any available government financial assistance. Taitem also has and established relationship with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). This allows us to efficiently process paperwork and prevent any delays.
