What is a Community Solar Garden?

The benefits of solar at no cost to you

Do I need to put anything on my roof?


Nothing! In a nutshell, community solar offers a way for virtually anyone to go solar without installing solar panels on their roof or their property. Membership to the garden is free, but limited to only a certain number of households in the area.

As a subscriber, you will experience no change in how you receive your electricity.

Will my utility provider change?
