One of our Exhibitors: Sun Power by New York State Solar Farm

SunPower by New York State Solar Farm (NYSSF) brings together the benefits of the most powerful Solar Panel on the planet with the longest and most inclusive warranty available - power, parts, and labor for 25 years on all system components.  NYSSF is a local, family owned company, serving as a primary upstate NY Solar installer since 2008, and one of only 30 SunPower Master Dealers in the nation.  We are also the only local Tesla Powerwall installer, meaning we offer a solution that allows you to take advantage of your solar energy even in grid outages, at night, and in bad weather conditions.  Since our founding, NYSSF has offered an escape from rising utility costs, tax benefits, $0 down, and savings from day one to over 1,200 families, with over 8 Megawatts of Solar installed. 
         NYSSF makes it simple, you decide to go Solar, and we do the rest.  We provide customized solutions, offering roof and ground mount systems, as well as lease, loan and cash purchase options.  NYSSF's goal is to grant the members of our community energy independence, allowing them to take greater advantage of the clean and renewable energy source that is our Sun.
