    Not if appeal pending and there are other arguments being made for every legal case. The 3 cases were not allowed as a class action. So for example the DTF was able to excluded evidence in one trial, but in the next trial they were not able to exclude it anymore. So each trail had to consider different evidence.
    BTW, all rulings have accepted that GSHPs are using solar radiation as a source.

    That was not the point. It was only about whether the circulation pump in the system is part of a conventional system, because it is connected the the grid and consumes energy, and now excludes the entire geo system as qualifying under the statue. Silly.
    The counter argument was that the loop circulation pump is a vital component of the GSHP system, similar to the circulation pump of a solar thermal circularoof top system. Or the inverter in a solar PV system being connected to the grid. The first Tribunal should rule in 4-6 months.

    I guess I have 3 years to submit an amended return.

    Not sure about NY law related to the prior issue, but new sytems have access to the federal 30% tax credit, the $1,500/ton NYSERDA rebate and for Westchester County only, Con Ed's $5,000 rebate too. All in all, a great time for Westchester residents to switch. Now if only i could find an installer ready to help me with my complex design (7 series split unit with two air handlers for my cooling needs, direct to loop piping for baseboard heating, with my natural gas boiler providing me back up heat).

    I missed that change. Also, it looks like the $5k ConEd rebate is currently only available via Dandelion. I've reached out to ConEd to see if they'd offer it to other installers too. I see no reason for them to limit it to one installer.

    Yes, it is only Dandelion. They were the only ones who submitted a request for proposals (RFP) to ConEd. Time will tell if that is good or bad....
