New Project coming in 2023
Members buy shares and get bill credits for locally produced power.
Everyone Can Go Solar!
Community Solar offers an affordable and easy way to grow our own power! Members benefit from monthly bill credits and the whole Co-op benefits from a first step towards a local source for emergency back-up power.
Why Community Solar?
Community Solar is the first step toward local solutions to expensive mainland power trends. It also offers increased redundancy, and the capability to re-route power for emergency services.

The Best Part: Save Money!
The solar units you purchase offset a portion of your electric bill. Experience a return on investment while also switching a portion of your electricity usage to clean, local solar power.
How does Community Solar work?
Buy Community Solar shares
Interested members can buy into the Community Solar array based on their budget and interest.
Get access to solar energy
The sun shines and the solar array produces electricity.

The energy credits are allocated based on how many shares you purchase and are added to your power bill.
