Fortunately, there’s a better option:
Did you know that Long Island, New York residents pay nearly 57 percent more for electricity than the nationwide average? Don’t expect these prices to fall any time soon, if ever. Over the past ten years, electricity has increased by 100 percent. Long Island residents consistently pay more than the national average for electricity, but the difference is quite startling. On average, residents pay 47 to 57 percent more than other cities in the United States.
What are homeowners and business owners doing to combat the high increase of electricity? More consumers are looking toward the future: residential roof solar panels. These panels are placed on the rooftop of a home or business and use the sun’s energy to provide the home or building with energy. Unlike electricity that has gone up 100 percent, solar energy cost has decreased by 72 percent over the past eight years.
There are valid concerns surrounding the electricity crisis, and it will begin to affect more people. Long Island solar energy on the other hand is plentiful and comes from our greatest resource, the sun. Consider that the sun produces enough light in one minute to fulfill the energy needs of our planet for an entire year. Now that’s something to get excited about!

With cost-effective options and the ability to lock in the price for energy today, a solar panel installation is the cleaner, cheaper and better way to consume energy.
