What is community solar?
Community solar is a new program in Maryland created by the state to enable everyone to get access to solar energy, no matter where you live. It allows Marylanders to subscribe to large solar projects in their area and enjoy the benefits of virtual net metering, which is like having solar on your roof without having to install any panels or make any upfront payments. The Public Service Commission regulates the program, including overseeing consumer protection rules and licensing subscriber organizations, such as Neighborhood Sun.
How does Community Solar work for me?
Community solar enables anyone who pays an electricity bill to tap into a local, solar farm installed offsite. Together with hundreds of other residents, you can subscribe to a share of a large solar project and have the same benefits like you had rooftop solar. Your solar energy will be delivered to you through your normal electric utility provider, so there’s no installation on your property or investment/upfront fees to be part of this.
All of our projects include these great benefits:
