We’ve partnered with the Chesapeake Climate Action Network to help bring you shared solar energy! For every person who subscribes with us through this page, we donate to CCAN or the Climate Access Fund to help these groups forward their missions.
We are currently in the process of transition to a new, easier signup process and want to ensure that our partners are accredited for introducing you to us. Please fill out this general form so that we may keep proper records. This WILL NOT sign you up for community solar, but rather take you to another page. Thank you for your patience.
NO PANELS TO INSTALL
NO ROOF REQUIRED
NO COST TO YOU
Community solar provides all the benefits of locally produced, affordable clean energy without any equipment to install or upfront fees. Any Marylander who pays an electric bill can take advantage of a solar project in their area, helping to save on utilities and build a greener Maryland.
HOW IT WORKS:
It doesn’t matter if you rent, lease or own your home.
You can take advantage of community solar if you pay a utility bill. Community solar farms are located throughout the Maryland area & your panels are located within one that is closest to you. You get credit on your electric bill for your portion of a nearby solar project.
Maryland utility customers are guaranteed to save at least 5% on their electric bill – inquire now to see availability and find out the exact amount YOU CAN SAVE.
No need to switch providers. Whether you have an apartment, condo, multi-family dwelling or individual home, you can take advantage of shared solar if you pay a utility bill through:
Baltimore Gas & Electric (BGE), Pepco Maryland, Potomac Edison/First Energy, Delmarva Power & Light or a Wind Contract
For-profit companies can (and should) be a force for good. That’s why we became a certified B Corp. The certification means that our commitment to being a better kind of business is real. We don’t just talk about doing the right thing, it’s baked into our corporate DNA.
The Maryland Public Service Commission regulates the program, including overseeing consumer protection rules and licensing subscriber organizations, such as Neighborhood Sun. Together, we’re on a mission to create a greener Maryland.
WHAT OUR MARYLAND CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT COMMUNITY SOLAR:
Community solar will be a game changer in Maryland, finally opening up access to local clean energy for a lot more people. I’m excited to see a local, homegrown company like Neighborhood Sun lead the charge.
Through its community solar subscription program, Neighborhood Sun helps Montgomery County electricity customers save money on their electric bills while reducing climate-damaging emissions of greenhouse gases. As a B corporation, Neighborhood Sun is committed to meeting high standards for social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency - another bonus for Montgomery County!
Community solar provides opportunities for us to build community while helping the needed transition to clean energy at [below] market-rate electricity prices. People, planet, and prosperity. What more can you ask for?
Community solar is a game-changer for Maryland. By expanding access to solar power through shared arrays, Maryland is investing in a more equitable clean energy economy and a stable climate.
"The West Laurel community has been partnering with Neighborhood Sun to bring renewable energy access to its citizens. At a recent neighborhood Town Hall, Gary Skulnik and the Neighborhood Sun team co-presented the case for community solar projects within our service territory. We received unanimous support to continuing pursuing a community solar project! The West Laurel community continues to be enthused, and inspired, by the Neighborhood Sun mission, and we look forward to being an integral partner moving forward."
