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.

Our projects available to you!

This is not rooftop solar! No solar panels are installed on your roof or property, and there are no buy-in fees to subscribe to community solar.

Contract is portable

If you move from the territory, you can cancel free and clear. If you move within your currently electric territory and still need power, you can take the contract with you!

Turning back the clock on emissions!

Since 1980, the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere has almost doubled, thus causing all sorts of environmental and atmospheric changes. However, we’re lucky to be in a state that allows us to chose clean, local, renewable energy (like community solar) over dirty fossil fuels. So, for the next six weeks, we’re turning back the clock on emissions (and your TV ads) for your chance to win great prizes as you sign up for community solar with us!
