FAQs

How does Common Energy source its clean energy?

We partner with project developers in your community to activate clean energy projects and connect this energy to the electrical grid.

faq icon
Am I actually supporting new clean energy?

Yes. Unlike many companies who simply purchase Renewable Energy Credits (RECs), when you sign up with Common Energy you help bring new clean energy projects to the grid. These projects directly reduce emissions in your community.

faq icon
Does Common Energy have a referral program?

Yes! And we love getting help signing up friends and family members for lower cost clean electricity! We currently offer a $50 gift card for each friend you refer that gets connected. Refer 10 friends and we will provide you with one full year of solar energy at no cost!

How does the program work?

Simple! New York State is encouraging more clean energy to be connected to the grid. To encourage people to sign up, each subscriber receives energy credits on their existing Orange and Rockland account. These credits lower your energy payments each month.

faq icon
How long does the connection process take?

Getting connected to a clean energy project typically takes between 4 and 8 weeks, depending on your utility. If you sign up in the winter, you may need to wait until the spring until a new project is built and connected.
