How Community Solar Works

Electricity produced by your solar panels allows you to save 10% on your monthly electric bill, and helps you support renewable energy.

1. Panels

We allocate you a portion of a shared solar garden in your area that will produce clean renewable energy on your behalf – no matter the season.

2. Utility Company

The electricity is sent to your utility company. You will see a positive credit on your normal utility bill for the electricity produced by your allocation.

3. You

Your lights turn on as always: no installation, extra costs, or additional downtime. Congrats, you finally get to benefit from affordable clean energy!
