What is Community Solar

Community solar is a new state program that enables businesses, homeowners and renters to support 100% local clean solar energy and receive 5-10% savings on their electric bills.

Community solar power is generated from a central solar farm near you and shared by multiple participants. You no longer need to have solar panels on your property to get the benefits of solar power for your home or business.

When you join a community solar farm you are helping to put more clean energy onto the electrical grid and lower air pollution for everyone.

Here’s How It Works

The Oregon Community Solar Program gives customers the option to join a community solar farm and receive credits back on their utility bill. There are no signup fees nor cancellation costs. Our farms are free to join.

For more details about the benefits of solar farms, what income and household size qualifies for the highest 20% savings rates, and utility bill examples to see what the credits will look like, download the Info Slides below and check out our FAQs.
