The state attorney general’s office is offering help to homeowners who want to get solar power.

A new brochure available on the attorney general’s website ( http://on.ny.gov/28Se2fz ) discusses the different types of solar contracts available, and what to look for when choosing a solar company.

It also details the steps involved in going solar and points out important considerations such as future sale of the home, protecting the roof, and getting a power production guarantee.

It recommends that landowners consult with an attorney before leasing land for large solar projects.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says the tips will help homeowners become more savvy consumers as they look into solar projects.
