The sun shines everywhere, but too few of us could take advantage of it before community solar came along. Community (also called “shared”) solar makes it possible for anyone with an electric bill to access solar energy, even if they can’t put it where they live.

With community solar, you can purchase or lease a “share” or subscription in a community solar project; or start a project with your neighbors. Every month, you receive a credit on your electricity bill for the energy produced by your share.

  1. Community shared solar facility produces clean energy and sends it to the grid.

  1. Utility company distributes the electricity to its customers and provides a credit on the bill of all subscribers for that energy.
