What is a Community Solar Garden?

  1. A solar energy project that covers several acres of land
  2. A more accessible source of clean electricity for renters, homeowners, and businesses when compared with rooftop solar installations
  3. An energy resource managed by solar developers that sends energy into your utility's existing power grid

Key benefits of Community Solar

  1. No equipment on your property
  2. No upfront cost to install solar panels
  3. Savings on your electric bills as the Garden produces clean energy

How does a Sunscription work?

  1. Individuals and businesses "subscribe" to a Solar Garden to support clean, local energy production
  2. Subscribers receive bill credits on their electric bill and make Sunscription payments based on the energy the Solar Garden produces
  3. Subscribers stay connected to their utility so your utility continues to deliver the same, reliable electric service to homes and businesses
  4. Subscriptions are flexible so it's easy to relocate, transfer, or cancel your Sunscription
