What is the cost?

Subscriptions can be purchased for a one-time up-front payment of $562 per subscription, or in 24 monthly installments of $26.31.

What is the monthly bill credit?

Once the project is built and generating power, participants will receive a bill credit each month based on how much electricity is generated by the solar array. For each subscription, the average residential credit will be around a couple of dollars per month, (higher in the summer, lower in the winter). Based on current projections, it adds up to about $23 per year per subscription, which means you may recoup the original subscription cost over the 25-year life of the project.

How to participate?

Read the Terms and Conditions and fill out a Participant Agreement indicating how many subscriptions you would like and your payment method. Enrollments are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
