Save on Your Electricity Bill
Members in community solar programs receive up to 10% savings on their monthly electricity bill, with no costs or hidden fees.
The answers you need, to some of our most frequently asked questions about community solar.
On your electricity bill each month, you will see the community solar credits from your subscription, also called the ‘subscription fee.’ We will match as closely as possible your electricity usage to the community solar credits you receive from our community solar program.
For example, if you use $100 worth of electricity in a month, you would receive $100 worth of community solar credits. Your savings come from us giving you up to 10% discount from those credits ($10 in savings in this example).
Solar developers and state agencies work closely together to deliver free and accessible community solar programs to all their members. For example, in New York, community solar is a NYSERDA program and its main purpose is to encourage adoption of solar energy and other renewables while removing barriers that prevent businesses and households from participating in solar.
You can read more about the NYSERDA program and the NY-SUN act here to help understand how community solar is free to businesses and residents in New York.
We give our community solar members 10% of the credit their subscription generates from our community solar farm. Monthly savings may vary slightly but the annual savings will come very close to 10%, if not equal it.
Savings can vary slightly from month to month depending on the number of sunny days and daylight hours, and how much electricity you use.
