Community Solar Programs
By partnering with local utilities, community solar projects create an opportunity for ratepayers to reduce their environmental impact and receive credits on their electric bill for the clean energy their panels produce. These innovative energy solutions utilize local construction companies for development and allow customers to reinvest their savings into the community, stimulating the local economy.
