The Town Board and its Climate Smart Committee have agreed on discounted rates and cash incentives with two established community solar providers. In about two minutes, you can cut your electric costs, take advantage of renewable energy, and also get some cash in the mail.
In March 2020, the Climate Smart Committee began working with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to find a way for Chatham-area residents to take advantage of decreasing solar generation costs as well as federal and state renewable energy tax subsidies—if you cannot or do not want to install solar panels themselves. Following NYSERDA guidance, the committee interviewed several providers before settling on Delaware River Solar and Astral Power. The Solarize Chatham program is the result. You get to choose whichever company you like best. The cash incentives differ slightly between the two, but both companies offer the same discount. No matter which one you choose, each time a resident signs up, the Town receives an incentive to be used for town climate smart projects.
IMPORTANT: To receive your cash incentive and for the Town to get credit, you must type “Solarize Chatham” in the “Referred By” box for Delaware River Solar and, for Astral power check Community Partner in the "How did you hear about us" field, and type "Solarize Chatham" under "Community Partner".
