Town of Hempstead Encourages Solar

The Town of Hempstead has recently taken many steps to go green, including installing a hydrogen fueling station at the Conservation & Waterways building in Point Lookout and hosting numerous solar and energy efficiency seminars. On October 5, 2010, the Town passed a cap of $100 on the fee for permit applications for solar system installations, a move which is expected to further promote the technology that is already lowering residents’ electricity bills.

Before the cap, the permit application fee was 1.2% of the total cost of the project. This was typically around $300-$500 for the average solar installation, which costs $10,000-$25,000 after rebates and tax credits, depending on overall electricity usage of the building. The new $100 cap allows Town of Hempstead Residents to keep a few hundred dollars more in their pockets, while also representing the Town’s continued effort to “go green.”
