Community solar projects are arrays of solar panels installed in a suitable offsite location. Community solar allows you to benefit from solar without installing panels on your home or business.
Anyone in the area who subscribes to a community solar project can access the clean energy produced by these solar panels and get credits toward their electricity bills.
To be a part of a community solar project you need to have an account with LIPA/PSEG-LI and find a community solar project in the LIPA service territory.
Once you identify a community solar project you can ask about rates, conditions and subscription plans and subscribe to a plan that works for you.
PSEG-LI will still deliver energy to you, and you’ll be credited for your portion of the power generated by the community solar project on your electricity bill.
