Community Solar Leader
Community Solar is a solar energy sharing program that is accessible and available to everyone in Poughkeepsie. Historically, solar power was only available to individual households that met the qualifications for rooftop solar panels and those that could afford the upfront costs. People who didn’t qualify for solar panels were unable to tap into solar energy and decrease their carbon footprint. Now, solar energy is available to everyone through Community Solar farms built by NRG Community Solar.
Community Solar arrays are built, operated, and maintained by NRG Community Solar on an offsite location that receives lots of sunlight. The energy produced from the Community Solar array is delivered directly to the power grid. Customers are subscribed to an appropriate amount of the solar farm’s solar panels (based on their historical energy usage) and receive solar credits that are applied to their utility bill. The solar credits have the potential to cover the entire amount of your utility bill, depending on your home’s energy usage and the amount of solar production. Community Solar farms encourage renewable energy and environmental conscientiousness, while also making solar energy available in the Poughkeepsie community and throughout the Hudson Valley.
