With Common Energy you will receive clean energy credits that lower your bill. Instead of paying your utility, you will support local clean energy and pay a lower amount to Common Energy. It's that simple!
Community solar is a new state program that enables homeowners and renters to support a local clean energy project and receive savings every month on their electricity bill.
Here's how it works:
Energy from the sun is converted into clean electricity by the community solar farm.
This clean electricity is connected to the utility, replacing fossil fuels and lowering emissions in the community.
Electricity flows as normal from your utility through the broader electrical grid to your home.
Everyone who signs up supports new clean energy and receives savings every month on their electricity bill!
"We are pleased to be part of this important project that brings real economic and environmental benefits to the entire community,” Richard Keiser, CEO of Common Energy
"The [Rockdale, MD solar] project is offering a 10 percent discount to residential electric rates as one-year subscriptions with the option to renew annually or cancel without cost."
"Through the partnership, New York State residents can sign up for a 10% discount on their electricity rate for up to 20 years at no cost."
"I think one of the most important things that we want to do is partner with organizations like Common Energy to try to get the benefits of this to the community, so that residents can save money."
"Through [the] NY Community Solar Partnership with Common Energy, Capital Region homeowners and renters can add solar energy to their existing National Grid account, save 10 percent on electricity and lower emissions in their community."
"Community solar farms allow utility customers to dedicate a portion of their bill to getting power from the projects, saving the average customer about 10 percent on their monthly bill."
