New York City, YSG Solar
July 17, 2019

Just yesterday, we discussed solar land leasing on this blog, which is a fantastic proposition for landowners. But maybe you’re thinking “Well, that’s great and all, but I don’t own huge tracts of land? How can I benefit?”. Don’t fret, we’ve got the answer - solar roof leasing.


If you live in New York City then there’s a pretty decent chance your property isn’t surrounded by unused land. However, thinking vertically, you just might have plenty of unused roof space. If that’s the case, then the same principles apply. If so, then you’ve got a major asset sitting idle right above your head.


The process is simple and straightforward. We rent your roof space to install solar panels and generate solar power, paying you for the use of this asset of course, and your previously unused roof space becomes an additional revenue stream for your home or business


We take care of admin, install, and maintenance, while you carry on as usual with no obstruction to your commercial or residential property. A solar panel installation is an efficient process, quick to completion and with minimal interference in your day-to-day life. Once the install is taken care of, you enjoy the financial and environmental benefits of the new solar project.


A Quick Q & A

  • What if my roof is in poor condition? - If needed, we install a new roof at no cost to you.

  • What if I sell the property? - We simply transfer the lease agreement to the new owner.

  • How long is the lease? - Typically, it’s a long-term commitment. To discuss exact details, please feel free to call us at 212.389.9215 today.

  • Will I have to operate/maintain the panels myself? - Of course not, we’re the solar company and it’s our job to take care of the solar panels.

  • How much roof space is required? - At present, we’re looking for roofs of at least 10,000 square feet.

  • How much can I make? - There is no catch-all answer here and the profit will vary from lease to lease. The important thing is that your previously idle roof will be working for you, consistently earning in the background. The best way to find out how much you could make is to contact YSG Solar for a chat.
