Community solar is a new state program passed in New York, Maryland 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!
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 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."

Common Energy’s customers directly support new clean energy projects. These projects have first priority to the electrical grid so each kilowatt hour (kWh) of energy they produce directly replaces energy from fossil fuels. On average each of our customers prevents 6,000 pounds of carbon emissions every year, and 120,000 pounds of carbon emissions over the lifetime of the project.View agreement
