"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."
You will prevent between 6,000-15,000 pounds of carbon emissions each year, depending on your utility and your electricity usage. Over the lifetime of a project this equates to preventing 120,000-300,000 pounds of carbon emissions. This is a direct reduction of emissions and pollution in your community!
