CommunitySolar

Community solar offers a way for virtually anyone to go solar, without

installing solar panels on their roof or their property. Sometimes

referred to as “shared solar,” wherein homeowners collectively pay for

a solar system that provides power to multiple households. A large

scale, off-site solar panel installation will typically offer available

energy to hundreds of homeowners.

In many cases, a community solar array can be built to power an entire

neighborhood or town. A resident can either own a few of the community

array’s solar panels or rent them in order to get discounted energy rates

without having to make any up-front purchase. Because the excess power

is delivered to the grid, net metering can be thought of as a solar storage

solution that allows you to push and pull energy to and from the grid

without having to pay extra for a home battery to provide backup.
