What is community solar?
Community solar arrays, also referred to as solar farms or solar gardens, provide access to a renewable energy program that benefits the community in multiple ways, including energy bill savings, job creation, and providing clean energy. Households and businesses can participate without installing solar panels on their rooftops or property.
In addition to bringing greater equity to the solar market by expanding who directly benefits from solar energy, community solar helps regions become more energy independent. Instead of importing dirty fuel into your state, community solar helps create good jobs and clean energy locally. Properly managed community solar farms also protect natural resources, preserving clean air and water while benefiting local agriculture and wildlife.
