Sustainable Energy Changes
Community Solar Subscriptions
Community solar subscriptions allows individuals benefit from community solar without owning anything. Through this program, customers will receive kilowatt-hour credits (kWh) on their electricity bill that lower the amount owed to the electricity provider.
Community Solar Share Purchase
Another way to support community solar is through purchasing a share of a community solar project. While subscriptions have no upfront fees, purchasing a share requires higher upfront costs and long-term commitment. However, customers are eligible for tax credits and renewable energy credits (RECS), unlike subscriptions.
Installing solar panels on your roof can be a good option if you are a home or property owner. Upfront costs may be higher compared to community solar, but many providers offer payment plans and loans to make solar a more viable option. Rooftop solar also makes you eligible for various tax credits and incentives.
