Community Solar is a state program that replaces a portion of your electricity usage with solar farm energy. The best part? It costs nothing extra – in fact, it costs less than sticking with all traditional electricity.
WHY COMMUNITY SOLAR?
No Rooftop Installs
No Sign-up Fee, No Cancellation Fee
The Renewable Energy Portion Of Your Bill
RENEWABLE ENERGY FOR THE PEOPLE
There are several reasons that people may not be able to get solar panels installed at their homes or businesses. Maybe their roof cannot support them, or they don’t own the property. But sustainability is more important than ever before in the face of rapid climate change. That’s why New York and local solar farms (large collections of solar panel systems, usually in an empty field or agricultural area) have teamed up to bring you solar energy that costs nothing to sign up for and lowers your bill via an immediate government rebate.

HOW DOES SAVING WORK?
As part of New York’s solar incentives, solar energy gets discounted to a lower rate than your regular electricity. Let’s break it down into a tangible example:
Let’s say you pay $0.17/kWh for electricity through your utility.
When you sign up for Community Solar, a portion of your electricity gets replaced with solar energy every month. That solar energy gets discounted below your regular electricity rate of $0.17/kWh.
In your first month, that solar portion might be $0.165/kWh. In your second month, it could be $0.155/kWh. In your third, $0.16/kWh. And so on.
See how solar energy costs less than regular electricity? Solar energy rates will stay under your $0.17/kWh because New York pays Community Solar users a rebate for participating. This guaranteed rebate is distributed as a discount and will altogether add up to 10% of the annual cost of electricity you would pay for without Community Solar.
THAT SOUNDS GREAT! HOW DO I SIGN UP?
