What is a Community Solar Garden

A solar electric array utilized by subscribing local residents, businesses, local governments and non-profit organizations that is connected to the utility grid.

Customers subscribe for a share of the solar production of the project and in turn receive a credit on their monthly electric bill. Price for a share (one panel) is $567.00. Energy credits are estimated to be $30.00 per year.

How much should I buy?

Community Solar Benefits
Community solar provides benefits to communities beyond local, clean, and more affordable energy. They can also create local jobs, limit impacts on delicate habitats, and reduce the need for transmission lines. And they help ensure that the benefits of renewable energy go to the people who want it most.

Community solar programs remove many of the barriers that have prevented a majority of homeowners and businesses from taking advantage of solar energy, like:

  • Site challenges – too much shade during most days, deed restrictions 
  • Risks – reduces or eliminates expense, complexity and maintenance of individual on-site solar installations 
  • Limited options – now there are two options: purchased blocks of solar energy (from outside of the local community) or a local community solar garden
