Good Energy Community Solar: A Smarter Way for Local, Clean Energy

New community solar initiatives allow New Yorkers to save money on electric bills while also utilizing renewable energy. A big plus to this program: No rooftop solar panel installation is required.

Through a Good Energy solar subscription service, New Yorkers keep their current electric utility and will receive a credit on their energy bill. The benefits of Good Energy’s community solar program include:

  • No rooftop installation
  • Convenience with simple sign up
  • No upfront costs, no investment, no financing
  • Promotes local economic development, investments in community
  • Lowers residents’ electricity bills through Solar Credits
  • Positive environmental impact
  • State grant money available
  • Work toward New York State climate targets

No contract is required for municipalities that sign up, and the process of creating a community solar program can be started with a simple motion by the community board. Good Energy will provide support material, including a website landing page and outreach letters explaining the community solar program to residents.
