What is community solar?Community solar refers to local solar facilities shared by multiple community subscribers who receive credit on their electricity bills for their share of the power produced.
This model for solar is being rapidly adopted nationwide. It provides homeowners, renters, and businesses equal access to the economic and environmental benefits of solar energy generation regardless of the physical attributes or ownership of their home or business. The community solar concept expands access for all, including low-to-moderate income customers, all while building a stronger, more distributed, and resilient electric grid.
Three steps to utility bill savings
Panels can be purchased up front or participants can opt for a pay-as-you-go solution. Signing up for community solar provides real economic benefits to the community and savings on each subscriber’s utility bill.
