Making Solar Power Easy and Affordable in NYC
Solarize LES (Lower East Side) is a campaign supported by NY State to accelerate the installation of SOLAR ELECTRIC POWER in New York City.
By gathering together interested home and building owners, Solarize LES helps you get the best deal on solar power. While most contractors decline small jobs on individual buildings, Solarize LES organizes many projects in close proximity within a short span of time. This creates a win-win economy of scale that benefits both building owners and contractors.
