Rent Your Home, Own Your Solar. Community Solar Can Help You Save.

As a mission driven business, we are constantly looking for ways to lower the barriers to clean energy. We have designed our community solar arrays (CSAs) to offer home renters of all varieties affordable, clean energy. Whether you’re just starting out in your career, new to the area or downsizing into a condo, we have the solar solution for people who want to save money on their bills.

Renters can go solar too

A community solar array is a field of solar panels. SunCommon’s CSAs allow you to purchase and own solar panels, without putting them on your property. This applies to renters. Even better, you can also claim the federal solar tax credit and the NYSERDA rebate, which means you can save even more money.

Many customers wonder, “What happens if I move in the future, or buy a new home?” Community solar is flexible. If you move to a new home with the same utility, you can still use the solar panels. SunCommon makes the switch easy. Call us, we’ll update your account number, and your new house has solar!

Community solar is simple.

Your utility will credit you a dollar amount on your monthly electric bill for your share of solar energy. It’s automatic, just like having solar panels on your roof.

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.

We currently have a CSA option for Central Hudson and Orange & Rockland electric customers.

We only have a limited number of new member spots left available, and this is the last year to claim the full 30% federal solar tax credit.
