How does Community Solar work?

It starts with a community solar project that is developed in your area. Developers seek out customers like you that value clean energy and the cost savings it can provide. Your participation makes these projects possible.

Complete your enrollment in three easy steps. The process takes just a few minutes.

Going green in 3 steps

A developer builds a community solar project in your area. They seek out customers like you who want clean energy.

Electricity produced by the community solar farm is delivered to the grid. You earn renewable energy credits for this electricity.

Your energy credits are deducted from your monthly utility bill. This is the bill you get from your regular electricity provider—in Maine, that’s usually CMP or Versant.

You’ll still be a customer of your electric utility. They’ll continue to deliver your power.

The solar developer will bill you separately for your renewable energy credits.

In Maine, these credits are 10% to 15% cheaper than the standard offer electricity rate. The savings are all yours!

Understand your usage

During the enrollment process, the developer will look at your average energy usage over the past 12 months. This enables them to allocate enough kilowatts to offset up to 100% of your monthly electric bill.
