Southern Tier Solar Works

Simple. Affordable. Solar.

We are a community based non-profit working with local volunteers to make the Southern Tier of NY healthier and more sustainable. Our primary focus is renewable energy. We help residents and small business owners go solar. In order to accomplish this, we’ve partnered with two excellent installers to streamline the process of going solar. We work together to help you maximize government and state benefits so that solar becomes very affordable. Declare your energy independence today!

Incentives for going solar are dropping more rapidly than the cost of solar panels. There has never been a better time to go Solar! Take advantage of these discounts before they disappear!

One of our interns, Colin Diamond just completed Dr. Gay Canough’s basic pv installer class. Check out this time-lapse video of an installation!
