What is Community Solar?
Community Solar is a solar energy sharing program that is available to everyone in Kingston. In the past, solar power was only available to individual households that could afford the large upfront costs of rooftop solar or that met structural qualifications. Those who didn’t qualify for rooftop solar panels were unable to invest in solar energy, increasing their carbon footprint. Solar energy is now accessible to everyone through local Community Solar farms built by NRG Community Solar without the hassle of rooftop solar panels.
Community Solar arrays are built and maintained by NRG Community Solar at an offsite location that receives lots of sunlight. Customers are subscribed to an appropriate amount of the farm’s solar panels for their home (based on historical energy usage) and the power produced is delivered directly to the local power grid. Then, customers receive solar credits for the same energy produced that are applied to their utility bill. Your solar credits can potentially cover the entire amount of your utility bill, depending on your home’s energy usage and the amount of solar production. Community Solar farms help make renewable energy available for Kingston residents, and others throughout the Hudson Valley. Learn more about Community Solar with our Community Solar 101 guide.
