Community Solar: Coming to a Town Near You!

Community Solar: Coming to a Town Near You!

community solar array in wallkill new york

In mid-2015, New York’s Public Service Commission issued an order permitting “Community Distributed Generation”, also known as “community solar” or “solar farms”. These larger ground-mounted solar arrays will soon be able to bring solar to everyone. Electricity generated by a community solar array goes into the utility company’s grid. Monthly credits are then applied to the utility bills of customers participating in the community array.

Community solar will soon let homeowners and renters have their electricity usage directly offset by a nearby solar array, keeping their energy dollars local.  It will also help mitigate climate change and reduce our reliance on electricity created from coal, gas and nuclear generating stations.  Community solar is about to open up a whole new way for solar to grow in New York State.
