The bill comes as part of the state’s goal to generate 25 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2015.

The company is estimated to save between $2,500 to $3,000 a year by using 68 solar panels on the roof top to generate electricity, with the excess power being sold back to Consolidated Edison

Mercury Solar Systems installed the 13.6-kilowatt system at a cost of $122,400, but C.W. Brown’s total costs will only be $10,400; after it receives a $55,000 grant from New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and $57,000 in federal tax credits.
