Community Solar in Action
A community solar farm, or project, is a collection of solar panels.
The community solar farm supplies clean, renewable, energy to your local utility company.
Homeowners, renters, and businesses can sign up for community solar in just minutes. When you sign up, you receive power from the same utility you use today.
Once your farm starts generating energy, you receive solar credits on your monthly utility bill that actually save you money on your energy costs.
See How It Works for You
Supporting solar energy has never been easier than with community solar. Plus, you’ll even come out ahead financially. Don’t whiff on this great deal.
Sign-up is easier than a tap in putt.
All you need is five minutes and your utility bill.

What happens after I sign up?
Once you’re signed up, we’ll keep you in the loop. We’ll let you know how to access your solar dashboard, where you’ll see photos of your project – and track your energy usage, solar credits, and impact on the environment.
Plus, we’ll let you know when your project is going live so you know when your subscription (and your savings) will begin.

You may have questions about how your utility bill will be impacted by charges and solar credits – and how those things lead to monthly savings. If you do, check out Community Solar: How the Billing Process Works.

2 As a community solar subscriber, your subscription charge (if any), solar credits, and resulting savings on monthly energy costs will vary depending on the state program or specific solar project. Your cost savings is dependent on your energy usage and the portion of the community solar project allocation you receive. Your individual solar project allocation would be determined using your current monthly energy usage with your existing utility company. People who subscribe to a community solar project in New York can save up to 10% on their monthly energy costs.
