The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority is extending incentives for solar power projects.

NYSERDA says the reallocation of more than $6 million in unused funds is available for projects in certain NY-Sun Solar Megawatt block programs.

Under the block program, residential, small commercial, and large commercial solar projects are eligible for rebates that lower total project costs and support greater use of clean, sustainable solar power.

State officials say the progress of residential and small commercial MW Blocks is approximately six to seven months ahead of schedule, reflecting the high demand for solar in the state.

NY-Sun is Gov. Andrew Cuomo's $1 billion initiative to move the state closer to a sustainable, self-sufficient solar industry.
