Not to be confused with its West Coast namesake in California, New York's Long Beach is a city in the territory of Nassau County. Tucked away on its southernmost region, Long Beach isn’t too far away from Brooklyn, Manhattan, and the rest of New York City, as well as having convenient access to Long Island.
As part of New York, and the United States, Long Beach is open to the same state and federal solar incentives which have driven so much solar growth over the past few decades. It’s not just the financial benefits that make Long Beach an appealing solar location either, but its location as well. Along the south coast of Nassau County, Long Beach has a warm, humid summer climate - so lots of potential for solar panels to catch some rays. In fact the city has been designated a Clean Energy Community by NYSERDA for its positive steps toward renewable, sustainable energy practices.
With its great coastal location and humid summer climate, Long Beach has tonnes of waterfront attractions for tourists and locals alike.
Financial incentives and tax rebates for potential solar consumers are a big draw across the state of New York, and Long Beach benefits from this as well.
Long Beach is home to multiple private and public schools, and conveniently located for access to colleges across New York.
Given its proximity to New York City, Long Beach residents have access to some of the finest museums cultural institutions in the entire world.
