You receive energy credits on your statement every month, lowering your energy cost.
Experience the pride and satisfaction of knowing your home enables more clean energy to reach the grid.
Prevent thousands of pounds of pollution in your community and state.
Connect your utility account to clean energy and start saving and preventing carbon emissions in two minutes!
Community solar is a new state program passed in several states 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, you can now sign up to support a new, local solar project through your existing utility account. Energy from the solar project has first priority to the grid, lower emissions in your community. In addition, everyone who signs up receives savings each month. It’s a triple win: for you, the community and the environment.
Common Energy have signed up over 5,000 households across the country and we need your help to reach more!
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.
Electricity flows as normal from your utility through the broader electrical grid to your home.
Anyone who signs up supports new clean energy and receives savings every month on their electricity bill!
We are a Community Solar subscription management organization. We connect regular people’s electricity accounts to clean energy, supporting the addition of NEW solar farms on the electrical grid. Our work displaces fossil fuel use and is an essential part of the national transition to a clean energy economy!View agreement
When your friends, family, and neighbors sign up for Community Solar, they will stop using fossil fuels to power their homes. By connecting people to clean energy, you can prevent millions of pounds of carbon emissions by reducing the use of fossil fuel electricity.View agreement
Common Energy helps people access Clean Energy Credits, the state incentive that comes with signing up for Community Solar. When an individual signs up for Community Solar, these credits will appear on their bill every month to indicate how much clean energy they are receiving and the accompanied savings.View agreement
A Clean Energy Advocate (CEA) will have a very flexible schedule. Your time will be spent reaching out to your friends and family to schedule appointments, teaching people about Community Solar over video calls, and helping people sign up. CEAs also engage in weekly team meetings and participate in group projects with other members of the team.View agreement
Common Energy helps enable the creation of solar farms that connect directly to the local utility allowing anyone who joins our program to gain access to the clean energy and its benefits without any type of installation on their home. Therefore, community solar is a much more equitable clean energy solution as renters, apartment dwellers and even mobile homes can join!View agreement
Our program was designed for and by students, so the Clean Energy Advocacy work is fully remote, mostly self-driven and CEAs are able to make their own scheduleView agreement
All you need is a passion to fight climate change and a network of people that you can teach about Community Solar.View agreement

So, you will receive an additional $35 every time someone new signs up to Common Energy through your personal website. We go over all of this during the CEA Training program.
