Community Solar
What is Community Solar? C ommunity solar is a solar field whose electricity is shared by more than one property. The primary purpose is to allow community members the opportunity to subscribe to and share the benefits of solar power even if they cannot or prefer not to install solar panels on their property. Project participants benefit from the electricity generated by the community solar farm, which costs less than the price they would ordinarily pay to their utility.
Is there Community Solar in my state?  Nineteen states either have policies supporting community solar projects or independent initiatives led by utilities and other groups that have decided to make these projects happen. The top states for community solar are Massachusetts, New York, Minnesota, and Colorado.
Does anyone I know subscribe to Community Solar?
Yes! Joan and Marc Plisko subscribe to Community Solar in Maryland, thanks to an initiative of Pearlstone . Pearlstone has partnered with the Silver Spring-based Neighborhood Sun solar company to ensure that Marylanders have access to clean energy resources.
What are the benefits of Neighborhood Sun's Community Solar program?
  1. Guaranteed savings on your electricity bill every month!
  2. Create a healthier environment for people and earth.
  3. Join with like-minded community members.
