Why are my credits and payments higher in some months and lower in other months?

With your Sunscription, the credit amounts on your electric bill and the payments to US Solar are based on the amount of energy generated at the solar garden. Because the amount of sunlight per day varies with the seasons and weather patterns, the solar energy generated - and the corresponding credits and payments - will also vary.  With the increase in solar energy production, you will pay US Solar more and receive a higher bill credit on your electric bill. In cloudier months when there is less solar energy production, you will pay US Solar less and receive a smaller bill credit on your electric bill.

What does that mean for my savings?

The state and program you are a part of determine your savings rate structure and overall savings with your Sunscription. Refer to your contract for your estimated total savings. As your solar garden produces more clean energy, you save more money!
