Solar for Non-profits
Many school districts on Long Island are looking into installing solar-electric systems under the LIPA Solar Pioneer Program, according to the New York Times. Many churches, libraries, and other non-profits are choosing solar to save costs and the planet -- two good causes!
About Installations for Non-profits More Nonprofits Looking Into Solar According to a recent article in the New York Times, on Long Island many nonprofits, including school districts, are considering the benefits of solar power.
The Carle Place school district was the first to install solar power (see the New York Times article that describes how Built Well Solar's founder helped make that happen!) and many other districts have since followed -- Malverne, Smithtown, East Hampton, Shoreham-Wading River, Bellmore, North Bellmore, Levittown to name a few who have had or are in the process of having installations completed.

Financial Incentives for Non-Profits
LIPA cash rebates:With cash rebates that LIPA offers to non-profits, such as schools and churches, as well as to municipalities, the price of a PV system is substantially reduced. Thousands of dollars are provided by LIPA as a cash incentive to make the switch to solar electricity, a way to reduce the strain on Long Island's energy grid. The Solar Entrepreneur Municipal & Non-Profit Rebate levels continue to be $1.75 per watt up to 100 kW or up to a maximum rebate of $175,000. Rebates are subject to change. Call us at 516-695-1000 to find out what the current rebate levels are today. Act now to schedule your PV installation in hopes of benefiting from today's generous rebate amounts.
Net Metering: Net metering is now offered for all applications. The solar power your system collects runs your LIPA meter backwards whenever there is any excess, and you are credited for that excess energy production as it goes back to the LIPA grid, for use on cloudy days or at night toward the total annual usage amount.
• Unique Financing for Schools: For schools financing a solar-electric installation may be accomplished using one or a combination of three options: 1.Energy Performance Contracts –Solar power is often installed as part of an overall Energy Performance Contract, which ultimately can pay for itself in energy cost savings. 2.EXCEL Aid – Capital improvements, including energy-related projects, are eligible for the EXpanding our Children’s Education and Learning (EXCEL) aid. Contact the SED to see if funding remains available. 3.State Aid –Capital projects such as the installation of a solar-electric system are state “aidable”.
