Binghamton to take part in NY solar energy program for low-income households

BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — Binghamton Mayor Rich David announced Tuesday that the city will take part in a New York State program called “Solar For All.”

According to Mayor David’s office, the program helps reduce the energy burden of low-income households by providing access to community solar subscriptions for free.

“Binghamton, a NYSERDA Clean Energy Community, has earned a reputation in recent years as a leader in sustainable initiatives, and by partnering with NYSERDA to promote Solar for All in our community, we’re proud to continue that trend,” Mayor David said in a statement. “This program not only provides an opportunity to reduce the City’s carbon footprint by making solar energy accessible to more residents, it also offers income-eligible residents a valuable opportunity to save on their electricity bills and spend that money elsewhere.”

Two workshops will be held for Binghamton residents to learn more about the program.

  • March 12, 6:30 p.m., Jeffrey P. Kraham Broome County Public Library, 185 Court St. in Binghamton
  • March 23, 1:30 to 4 p.m., NoMa Community Center, 85 Walnut St. in Binghamton

Organizers say residents can sign up directly by visiting nyserda.ny.gov/solarforall, or can request a paper application by emailing solarforall@nyserda.ny.gov, or calling 1-877-NYSMART.
