ALBANY, New York, US, 2004-03-17 (Refocus Weekly) A government agency in New York state will provide new incentives for small, non-commercial, grid-connected wind systems.

The New York State Energy Research & Development Authority will offer technical and financial assistance for systems that are installed on a lot no smaller than one acre and which can be rated for at least 500 watts. The New York Energy $mart Wind Incentive Program can offset installation costs by 15% to 70%.

"With financial incentives in place and a growing network of qualified installers in the program, NYSERDA is making it easier for more homeowners to use wind energy," says president Peter Smith. "Thanks to the Governor's support and the public's growing interest in clean energy, we are poised to expand the state's use of clean, renewable power for our future energy needs."
