LIVINGSTON MANOR – A formal effort to offer residents and businesses in Sullivan County solar power began Thursday evening with the launch of “Solarize Sullivan.”
The program is part of RenewableNY’s effort to transition the state
to a clean energy future. Katherine Nadeau, program director of RenewableNY
for Catskill Mountainkeeper, said Solarize Sullivan makes the installation
of that sustainable energy source that much more attainable.
“Every year, more and more people are choosing to go solar in New York State and throughout the country because it is a great time,” Nadeau said.  “There are a lot of state and federal tax incentives and grant programs out there to encourage people to go solar and chose energy independence for themselves, and also this is the type of campaign, the solarize campaigns, are spreading the word throughout the community. People see their friends and neighbors going solar. They know it can be done and they know they can do it too. It’s a great opportunity.”
The program is supported by NYSERDA, the state’s NY-Sun initiative and Community Solar.
