SunCommon is working on building a brand new Community Solar Array (CSA) in our hometown of Rhinebeck, NY. The CSA will help you and your neighbors go solar — no roof required! —and support clean energy production, all while saving money.

How does Community Solar work?
Solar is now as easy as a monthly subscription.
Your solar power comes from the shared, community array – not panels at your home. Clean, local energy, without a home construction project.
Membership is a 3-month rolling commitment. Need out, no problem. Let us know, and you’re out in 90 days.
No Upfront Cost.
No big check to write, no financing to commit to. Just a monthly subscription – and 10%* savings to boot!

We’re a company that cares about the people and places that surround us. We’re a Certified B Corp in New York State and a Public Benefit Corporation. It’s written into our business plan to consider a triple bottom line: people and planet, right along with profit. We use our business as a force for good, supporting our community and our environment, instead of just thinking about dollars. We also partner with other local businesses that share our values and help our communities thrive.
We are breaking down barriers to clean energy every day by making it easy and affordable for all New Yorkers to go solar. We’re building this array because we believe in vibrant Hudson Valley Communities. We’re excited to help support the clean energy leadership shown by our friends in Rhinebeck. Not just any small American town can say they are solar powered, so we’re stoked to be part of this story.
Our roots run deep
SunCommon is your homegrown solar installer, located right in Rhinebeck. We’ve been helping Hudson Valley residents go solar since 2002, and our 1,700 happy customers there can attest to our high quality products and the integrity we bring to our work. When you choose SunCommon, you’re putting your energy dollars towards something bigger: your own community.
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 live within the same utility load zone as the array. Since most utility load zones span counties, towns, and zip codes, our Solar Advisors will help determine which array you would belong to.
