Do you want to save money each month on your home electricity costs, plus support the development of clean solar energy near where you live? Now you can with CleanChoice Community Solar.
50 to 75 percent of U.S. consumers don’t have access to solar energy through rooftop installations on their homes. But not everyone can install, or wants to install, solar panels on their roofs.
Consumers now have a new way to reap the benefits of solar—it’s called community solar. And, it’s helping people save on their utility bills.
Instead of paying to place expensive panels on household roofs, community solar lets a group of households—renters and homeowners—to support a centralized solar farm together. The energy produced by the farm then results in a credit each month for each of the farm’s subscribers.
Another perk? Community solar also supports the development of good, clean energy industry jobs and cleaner air in the regions where they’re located.
CleanChoice Energy has many community solar farms available for subscribers now* (see the below list of where they’re located). CleanChoice Energy believes that everyone should have access to the benefits of clean, renewable energy—and is working hard to make that possible. Community solar is just one way they’re empowering consumers to make a difference.
