Every solar project should begin with a comprehensive energy audit, with a basic energy audit required in order to receive NYSERDA incentives for PV projects. Energy efficiency measures can help to maximize the financial and environmental benefits of investing in solar by substantially reducing your base energy load. There are many ways you can reduce electricity use in your home and help reduce your energy bills.
