- Excerpt from Making Solar Power More Affordable for New Yorkers:

These newly enacted statutes:
• Exempt the sale and installation of commercial solar energy systems — defined as systems which convert solar radiation to energy for cooking, hot water or electricity—from State sales taxes, beginning January 1, 2013, and grant municipalities (counties and cities) the power to exempt these systems from local sales tax. New York’s similar program for residential solar energy systems continues unchanged.
