Why NOW Is the Right Time to Go Solar

The “big purchases” we make in our lives must be weighed carefully since they have the power to affect our financial future. Homes, cars, boats… some assets are good investments while others depreciate rapidly. Do you want to know the best kept SECRET INVESTMENT? Solar for your home! Photovoltaic panels don’t become obsolete like throwaway technology (e.g. that smartphone in your pocket). In fact, your solar panels will power your home long after you pay them off. If you lease solar for your home, you’ll enjoy a reduced and stable energy bill with no money out of pocket. That’s because of the incredible federal and state tax incentives and on-bill low interest financing options. Compound that with the purchasing power of the Solarize program, and the right time to go solar is now!

The Greenburgh Nature Center is excited to partner with the Town of Greenburgh to bring Solarize to our town. Since March 6th, nearly sixty community members have filled out the Solarize Greenburgh Info Request form! Join their ranks and take the first step in getting solar on your home or business. The more people in our community that install solar through this program, the better price we all get. The unique discount buying system is tiered, so all new solar owners will get rebates based upon the number of their neighbors that also go solar.


  • Steep discount on solar installation whether purchase or lease.  Contract must be signed by June 5, 2017.

  • Competitively pre-selected installer ensures the best price and work.

  • High quality, attractive solar panels.
