Community solar enables individuals, small businesses, and/or non-profit organizations to receive direct benefits, similar to on-site solar installations. Subscribers to a community solar project receive credits on their bill for their portion of the energy produced by the community solar system. Benefits of Community Solar:
Support Clean Energy-play an active role in displacing the need for fossil fuels that are a major source of greenhouse gas emissions and other toxic pollutants
Cut Energy Costs- Lower your monthly electric payments with community solar credits applied directly to your utility bill.
No installation Required- Zero upfront costs, no siting requirements, non-profits, renters, homeowners or small businesses with an electric bill in your name can participate
Energize Your Local Economy-Support your neighbors by helping to create jobs in construction, engineering, maintenance, and development

“As pastor of a church that takes stewardship and creation care seriously, I’m happy to have us be part of a program that encourages production of more clean, renewable energy – and lets our members save a bit on their bills at the same time. This is a real win-win solution for us,” says Pastor Steve Gretz of Greece Baptist Church.
