An option for anyone to gain economic and environmental benefits of solar energy without having to invest in or install a solar array on your property.
Why You Should Subscribe
Benefits of Community Solar
On Your Electricity
Subscribers of community solar projects receive solar bill credits from their local utility which reduces their bill and results in savings.
Join & Transfer
Since there is no need for installation, subscribers can join online. Also, if you move, we can transfer your subscription to another eligible property.
No Roof Required
With community solar, the project is located offsite so there is no installation or maintenance to worry about.
Community solar is a clean, renewable source of electricity. When customers subscribe to community solar, they are reducing their reliance on fossil fuels, resulting in a smaller carbon footprint.

Who Can Subscribe
Community Solar is Accessible
Our community solar projects serve anyone or any organization that pays an electricity bill. Local government, school districts, businesses, nonprofits, and residents can all subscribe and benefit from community solar. We start by analyzing the historic electricity consumption of a building or a portfolio of buildings. Then, we work with the subscriber to meet their environmental goals and economic goals by accurately sizing a subscription to a solar project. Once you are approved and the solar project is energized, you will receive credit off of your monthly electricity bill. Also, you’ll be able to see how much your energy subscription is producing and your environmental offsets in our subscriber portal.
