The Citizens Foundation and SunCommon are growing solar in the Hudson Valley.
The Orange County Citizens Foundation’s strives to create public spaces that capitalize on local community assets and inspire citizens to adopt a healthy and happy lifestyle. Their mission fits right in with SunCommon’s mission to build a brighter future and healthy environment for all. Together, with the new community solar array, they’ve helped 60 local residents power their lives with clean energy from the sun.
This CSA is currently full. But, occasionally members move outside of the O&R service territory. Add your name to the waitlist and we’ll reach out when and if that happens!
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.
Community Solar Members can save up to 30%* on their electric bills! See what you could save.
*Savings based on a 3% annual utility rate escalation over 25 years.
“We, at the Citizens Foundation, have made a commitment to clean, affordable energy for our residents, businesses, and our own organization. We asked SunCommon to build this community solar array on our property in Sugar Loaf to provide citizens with solar power without having to install it on their own. NY State has set a goal to have 50% of our energy come from renewable sources by 2030. We take that seriously and we’re proud to do our part to help that become a reality in Orange County. Please join us!”
Nancy Proyect President of the Citizens Foundation
