Residential and Commercial Solar Installations

Solar electricity and/or solar hot water systems may be installed on residences or businesses in the Village. Property owners who are interested in exploring solar electricity can pick up an information sheet on residential solar electricity in the Village Clerk’s office or view it on the Village web site. You can also search the NYSERDA web site: http://www.nyserda.ny.gov for both solar hot water and solar electricity programs, along with a list of certified installers and information on New York State financial incentives.

The Village’s Historic Preservation and Architectural Review Board recently approved two roof-top solar installations on homes within the Village. In both cases the Village permits were issued based on a short application form and a brief discussion at a monthly HPARB meeting. For more information about the application process contact Tavis Austin, the Village Codes Enforcement Officer, at 547-2411.
