Join the Citizens Foundation and SunCommon in growing solar in the Hudson Valley.

The Orange County Citizens Foundation’s mission is to improve the lives of Orange County’s citizens.

We believe that everyone has the right to a healthy environment and brighter future – and renewable energy is where it starts.

The new community solar array at the Citizens Foundation homestead in Chester will help approximately 60 homes to go solar. If Orange & Rockland is your utility company and you want to go solar but not on your property, then you could go solar too!

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.

“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!”
