What is Community Solar?

Community Solar is enabled by your state’s Renewable Energy Program, which encourages the development of solar farms as a way to meet aggressive clean energy targets over the next few years.

The Maryland Public Service Commission has adopted regulations for a community solar pilot program in Maryland, with an emphasis on providing renewable energy benefits for low and moderate income customers. Community solar customers are expected to see some savings on their electric bills and all Marylanders will benefit from more clean energy options.

In addition, the program will encourage private investment in Maryland’s solar industry and diversify the state’s energy resource mix to meet Renewable Portfolio Standard and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Act goals.

Community Solar is the EASIEST way to go solar, reduce your carbon emissions, and save money.

How does it work?

1. Link your utility bill with a solar project

Connect your existing electric account with a nearby solar project. You just need a copy of your recent utility bill. Enroll online in under 2 minutes, completely free.

2. Match with a green energy project

Based on your annual consumption, your home is allocated a share of the electricity that the project generates.

3. Start generating green energy

When there is sunshine, the solar project generates power and feeds it to your community’s electric grid.

4. Receive solar credits

Your utility bill is credited for the amount of solar energy that was generated for you during this billing cycle, reducing what you owe the utility (see example below).

5. Pay for your solar credits

After your reduced utility bill arrives, you pay your solar project directly for your solar credits at the guaranteed discount of 5-25% (discount depends on state, utility, customer status and project).
