Is Community Solar for You?

Installing a solar system at your home is no longer the only option to “go solar.”

Community Solar, or “shared solar,” is a way for multiple participants in a community to share the benefits of a solar array. It is a great way to “go solar” for those who cannot install panels themselves, but still want to cut their carbon footprint and save on their electric bill.

You won’t have to worry about maintenance or an installation. Plus, you can “go solar,” even if:

  • Your home’s rooftop faces the wrong way or has too much shade
  • You own a condo, or rent, and don’t own the roof
  • You don’t have the money to invest in a solar array
  • You’re concerned about how solar panels would look on your roof

What You Should Know About Community Solar

How it Works: With community solar, you’ll receive credit on your electric bill for production from a share of a remote solar farm located in your region. You get these credits at a discounted rate, so you save on your utility bill from the time your share starts to produce. The developer takes care of maintenance and repairs, and you join the project with no upfront investment.
