The Rise of Community Solar


Introduction to Solar Energy’s New Dawn

Welcome to the future of renewable energy, where the sun’s power transcends individual rooftops, spreading its rays into the heart of communities. In a world eager for sustainable solutions, solar energy shines as a beacon of hope. Yet, not everyone has a roof to call their own or one suited for solar panels. This is where community solar comes into play—a game-changer making solar energy accessible to all.

What is Community Solar?

Community solar projects, or solar gardens, are collective solar power plants shared by multiple subscribers. They're designed for those who either don't own a suitable roof for solar panels or prefer not to install them on their property. Participants can buy or lease a portion of a larger solar array and receive credit on their electricity bills for the power produced.

The Benefits of Embracing Community Solar

Accessibility to Clean Energy

Community solar opens the door to clean energy for renters, apartment dwellers, and those in shaded or unsuitable locations for rooftop solar. It democratizes access to solar power, ensuring more people can contribute to and benefit from renewable energy.

Financial Savings

Subscribing to a community solar project can reduce your electricity bill without the upfront cost of installing your own system. It's a financially savvy way to go green.

Environmental Impact

Joining a community solar project contributes to reducing the carbon footprint. By participating, you're supporting renewable energy adoption, leading to decreased reliance on fossil fuels and a healthier planet.

How Community Solar Works

  1. Joining a Project: Find a local community solar project in your area and subscribe to a share that matches your energy needs.

  2. Energy Production: The solar array generates electricity, which is fed into the grid, reducing the need for energy from non-renewable sources.

  3. Receiving Benefits: Subscribers receive credits on their electric bills for their share of the power produced, lowering their monthly costs. Learn more
