How Our Referral Program Works

As a community solar subscriber, you already made a great choice to support clean energy – and you’re helping your state meet its climate action goals. You can do even more good by helping others plug into the benefits of community solar with our referral program.

Refer friends and family members to sign up for one of our community solar projects.

Provide them with the email address on your Nelnet Renewable Energy account, and make sure they include your email in the Promo Code field during sign-up.

Once you and the new enrollee begin receiving bill credits, you’ll each receive a $50 Gift Card.1*
