What is Community Solar?
Community Solar is a solar energy program facilitated by some states, that allows everyone – homeowners, renters, and businesses – to support the use of clean renewable solar energy. Local residents support the production of clean energy by subscribing to a portion of the farm based on the amount of electricity a given subscriber consumes. In turn, subscribers receive solar credits on their utility bill.
What are the benefits of Community Solar?
Community Solar fosters the production of clean energy by offering the opportunity to support renewable solar energy to everyone regardless of income, or whether they rent or own a property. The clean renewable energy produced by community solar farms replaces energy that would otherwise be produced by fossil fuels. The end result is lower emissions of greenhouse gases and a cleaner environment. Subscribers to Community Solar additionally benefit from the opportunity to reduce their overall utility costs.
What does it cost to subscribe to Community Solar?
There is no upfront cost to become a Community Solar subscriber. In most cases, with proper notice there is also no cancellation fee.
Is there anything to install or maintain?
No. Unlike rooftop solar, nothing is installed on your roof or property. The construction and maintenance of solar farms is the sole responsibility of the solar farm developer.
This almost sounds too good to be true. What’s the catch?
No catch. You are already paying into “renewable energy” on your utility bill. This allows you to receive the credits.
