Community Solar

Go solar – No Roof Required!

Anybody (including renters) who pays an electric bill can subscribe to a local solar  project, helping to build stronger communities and fight climate change and save money. Community solar offers the benefit of solar to those who can’t or don’t want to install solar panels on their homes, including renters, apartment/condo dwellers.  If you subscribe to a community solar project, you receive a credit on your electric bill each month for the energy energy produced by your share. 
We’re partnering with Neighborhood Sun to provide a way to go solar without installing panels and without upfront fees. See how community solar works by watching this video and clicking HERE.
