Affordable, High-quality Solar for the Hudson Valley and Capital Region

At SunCommon, we offer affordable financing with no upfront cost for our high-quality solar and energy storage systems. You’ll lock in your energy costs, gain energy independence and save thousands over the life of your installation, compared to what you would have paid your utility.


New York Makes it Easy

Did you know New York is one of the best states for you to go solar? Federal and state tax incentives help make it affordable for almost everyone. Here’s how it breaks down:

Federal Tax Credit
Get 30% of the cost of your solar system back on your federal taxes

NY State Tax Credit
Get up to 25% of the cost of your system (up to $5,000) back on your New York state taxes

NYSERDA Incentive
Get $0.20 per DC watt of your installed system back from NYSERDA

SunCommon Knows New York 

SunCommon has been serving the Hudson Valley and Capital District for nearly two decades, where our happy customers can attest to the high quality of our work and the integrity we bring to it every day. We are one of only five NYSERDA Platinum Status Installers, meaning SunCommon has been designated as a Quality Solar Installer in New York State for six consecutive years. With thousands of installations, we have experience like no other.

Mead Orchards
In addition to homes and businesses, we also solarize farms, a hugely important piece of our state’s culture and economy. Mead Orchards in Tivoli grows fruits and vegetables year round, and since they went solar, their energy costs are secure and predictable, letting them focus on growing produce the way they know best.

Red Hook CSA
In 2019, we built a community solar array (CSA) that is currently serving 250 homes and 27 municipal buildings in Red Hook, including the town halls and libraries. This CSA saves the town thousands of dollars every year and allows community members to vote with their dollars for hometown power.

Solar Financing

There are three ways you can own your panels: 

12-year loan
Our standard 12-year loan offers interest rates as low as 4.24%, and you pay if off fast.

20-year loan
Our 20-year loan gives you the lowest monthly payment so you can lock in affordable, predictable rates now and save over the long term.

Cash, or your own financing
You can also choose to pay for your solar system in cash or otherwise without SunCommon’s financing – flexibility is an important part of SunCommon’s approach to helping you go solar.


Our financing partners make going solar more accessible than ever. You’ll get:

  • Interest rates as low as 1.49% 
  • No pre-payment penalty
  • Borrow up to $150,000
  • Ability to re-amortize up to 3 times during the life of the loan when applying additional principal
  • Soft credit check & instant approval
  • Combine solar, storage, and even a home improvement loan into one simple payment

Whether or not you opt into SunCommon’s financing, purchasing your solar panels means that once they’re paid off, your energy is free and clear for years to come.

SunCommon has a model that makes solar possible. Because of their financing, I’m investing in my own solar system instead of paying the utility. It just makes sense. This will save me money in the long run, and that makes me a stronger business.”

Put simply, SunCommon cares. The lead of their extraordinary install team was technically expert and his crew knowledgeable and hard working. Moreover, they were friendly and respectful of our home. SunCommon and its employees earned a five star review.”

I’ve wanted solar panels for many years but always got sticker shock when I saw how much they cost. The SunCommon model lets us pay off a low interest loan month by month with no down payment. What has impressed me most is how easy the process has been.”
