Community Solar

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.


Subscribe to Solar

Our community solar projects serve anyone or any organization that pays an electricity bill. 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.

Save Money On Your Electricity

Subscribers of community solar projects receive solar bill credits from their local utility which reduces their bill and results in savings.

Choose Solar, No Roof Required

With community solar, the project is located offsite so there is no installation or maintenance to worry about.

Join & Transfer Conveniently

Since there is no need for installation, subscribers can join online. Also, if you move, we can transfer your subscription to another eligible property.

Support the Environment

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.

What is Community Solar?

Instead of putting panels on your roof, community solar is a subscription service for clean energy. You subscribe to a local solar project and receive credit on your monthly utility bill.
