The NYSERDA loan is a great option, and thankfully we are one of the few companies on Long Island that are able to offer it. The idea behind this loan is that it allow customers to finance solar for their homes with an affordable fixed interest rate at 3.49%, compared to the other banks that offer solar loans starting at 6.49%. This NYSERDA loan has only a $150 origination fee and has no pre-payment penalties. This loan is most certainly the best loan being offered in the green energy market today.
Vivint Solar is a national solar company that has been under fire for some of their practices.

The first in a series of public hearings was held in Riverhead Monday evening on PSEG Long Island’s proposed rate hike.
The utility has announced a proposal to raise its delivery charge for customers by about 3.8 or 3.9 percent a year over the next three years.
A Newsday review of the proposal found that the plan would also allow the utility to increase rates beyond that to pay for certain debt, power and storm costs.

PSEG Long Island’s announcement comes as Long Islanders already pay exorbitant electrical bills.
Now we’re being asked to absorb a 3.8 percent delivery charge increase each year for three years. This includes an increase in the fees the Long Island Power Authority pays to PSEG.
But is that really the only increase customers will pay? The current plan for a delivery charge increase doesn’t even include PSEG Long Island’s Utility 2.0 plan, which the company says is “on a separate track” from the rate increase. Nor does the increase include a new mechanism to recoup costs from customers when electricity sales decline because customers seeking green alternatives to PSEG’s dirty expensive electricity.
Will Long Island ratepayers be asked to pay for more power from PSEG’s New Jersey and Connecticut plants, while the company delays new, clean, efficient capacity to serve Long Island itself? What about our economic development? What about protecting our jobs and tax base?
We are living in a very exciting time when we are seeing the shift from the old monopoly power companies to the clean industry of “solar”. The Power companies have been slowly losing their grip on being able to over charge for the sale of energy, But before we see this complete switch from dirty fossil fuels to Solar the power company is going to bleed their remaining customers for every dime that they can.
