What is Community Solar?

Community solar is a new state program passed in New York, Maryland, Maine, Minnesota, Massachusetts, and Illinois that enables virtually anyone to support clean energy for free, and receive guaranteed savings on their electricity each month.

Instead of installing solar panels on your home, households and businesses can now sign up to receive clean energy credits from a local solar project. These credits lower your energy cost each month.  In addition, because renewable energy has first priority to the grid, this energy replaces fossil fuels, lowering emissions in your community.

Virtually every household in the state qualifies for these new programs. Common Energy have signed up over 3,000 households and we need your help to reach more!
