Community Solar: Growing Solar Together

SunCommon helps hundred of households go solar each year. We currently offer two great options: Home Solar Power and Community Solar Arrays (CSAs). Community Solar is the latest way to power your life by the sun, and the benefits are two-fold: CSAs provide solar to many households at once and they keep our local landscape healthy by incorporating pollinator plantings around the perimeter of the array.

Here’s How Community Solar Works

Members of a CSA use solar credits produced by that array to reduce or eliminate their utility bill. The only requirement to become a member of a Community Solar Array is that you must live within the same utility load zone as the array. Since most utility load zones span counties, towns, and zip codes, our Solar Advisors can help determine which array you would belong to.

Is Community Solar The Right Option For Me?

  • Out of sight, out of mind: Going green is now as simple as seeing solar credits on your utility bill!
  • Plan on moving soon? Community Solar is a flexible option
  • Community Solar is sited for maximum sun hours, so there’s no need to worry about shade from surrounding trees
  • Easily cover 100% of your home’s electric usage without worrying about space constraints

Two Options for Becoming A CSA Member:

Ownership


  • Maximum savings
  • Own your solar panels
  • Receive the tax credits available

Subscription


  • Easiest entry and exit
  • Like any subscription, pay as you go
  • If circumstances change, a simple cancellation fee will refill your spot

Planting Pollinator Gardens Around Our Arrays.

As if clean energy isn’t enough, at SunCommon, we are out to do even more good for the community. The array at the Orange County Citizens Foundation (and more arrays in the future) will also host wildflower plantings that support our ever-important pollinator friends. Citizens Foundation members and the public alike can enjoy the flowers and bask in clean energy production by walking on the path around the array.

My wife and I joined the Monkton Community Solar Array in March of this year with a 7% share, and we immediately began seeing benefits. Our CSA share generates enough credits to cover our electric bills over the summer, pay for our two heat pumps AND take us into the winter with a $726.00 credit on our electric bill. We are saving money and our heat pumps are reducing the amount of oil we burn helping to make our little corner of the world just a bit greener!
Bruce BaldwinCommunity Solar since 2015
The Community Solar option not only suited my environmental motivations, it also benefited my wallet. Every month I’m guaranteed savings for the share of solar credits I receive from the Community Solar Array. Instead of paying a monthly electric bill, my dollars will be going toward an array alongside dozens of other Vermonters in need of an alternative solar solution.
