What is community solar?

If you are a small business or resident in the communities where we offer Community Solar, RWE Clean Energy is able to help you go solar without installing any panels at your site.

A community solar project is a solar farm whose electricity is shared by more than one property. The primary purpose of a community solar farm is to allow members of a community to share the benefits of solar power even if they cannot or prefer not to install solar panels on their property. Project participants benefit from the electricity generated by the community solar farm, which costs less than the price they would ordinarily pay to their utility.

How Community Solar Works

Step 1

You enroll in a our regional community solar program and you receive a credit on your electric bill. We bill you at a 10% discount for the credits received.

Subscription process

  1. A copy of your utility bill – we need this to ensure that your utility issues the proper solar credits to your account.
  2. A payment method – RWE Clean Energy will invoice you for the solar credits you receive on your utility bill less 10% , so you will always save on your electric bill. Have your credit card or bank account information available when you subscribe.
