The Community Solar Array at the Pointe of Praise Church in Kingston has helped over 100 local homes go solar. If Central Hudson is your utility company and you want to go solar but not at your home, then Community Solar is the perfect solution for you.
This CSA is currently full. But, occasionally members move outside of the Central Hudson service territory and a space will open up. Add your name to the waitlist and we’ll reach out when we have a spot available!
A new solar option for New York
The Pointe of Praise church in Kingston strives to improve the lives of its community members, and that fits right in with our thinking at SunCommon.
Community Solar Arrays (CSAs) are your local solar farm co-op. When you buy into a CSA, you have all the benefits of owning a solar array for your home without installing anything on your roof.
“We at Pointe of Praise Family Life Center believe that God created this good earth that we dwell on, and He has commissioned man to be responsible and take care of it.
In fulfilling this obligation, we’ve asked SunCommon to build a Community Solar Array on our property in Kingston, NY.
This will provide citizens of all economic standings access to solar power without having to install it on their own properties.
NY State has set a goal to have 50% of our energy come from renewable sources by 2030. We are proud to be partners in making this happen.”

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.
