Benefits of Community Solar

  • Equal Access: Community solar works for anyone with an electric bill, including renters, residents in multi-unit buildings, and businesses that don’t own their roofs. That means community solar can give ALL Americans equal access to solar for the first time.
  • Favorable Economics: Sunshine is free, which means solar offers reliable energy at a predictable rate for decades. And because community solar projects are optimally sited, professionally maintained, and built at scale, consumers can save even more money.
  • It’s Easy: Customers can sign up to participate in a community solar project in a few minutes and begin receiving power production credits on their next utility bill. No contractor visits, permits, or maintenance means no hassle.
  • It’s Mobile: Community solar allows customers to move within the utility territory and still retain their participation in the community solar project, making it an easy, portable energy solution.
  • Utility Partnerships: The community solar model is based on a mutually beneficial relationship with utilities, allowing them to provide a product their customers want—locally-made clean energy.
