Community Solar in WNY

Go Green for Good.

 

Switching to clean energy has never been more simple. In just minutes, you can reduce your carbon footprint and your electric bill, all while supporting the development of community solar projects right here in Western New York.

How Community Solar Works

Reap the savings on your electric bills without owning or installing solar panels.

Community Solar is a large solar array, comprised of different members who subscribe to a small percentage of it  – much like a co-op. It produces electricity in Cattaraugus County – right here in Western New York – enabling you to harness the power of solar and the savings associated with it. You do NOT have to install solar panels or any physical equipment on your property, everything is handled electronically.

Good for the Environment

In addition to the financial benefits, you’ll also be helping reduce pollution created by traditional energy sources, improving our overall air quality and health.

Good for Your Wallet

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, there are economic benefits to community solar:

  • Community Solar projects provide high-paying local jobs to members of your community.
  • Community Solar projects are often strategically located on former state or federally owned land that currently produces no tax revenue. Our community solar projects are privately owned, therefore will generate tax revenue for your community.
  • The savings to individual participants (you) often stay in your community. Simply put, by paying less for your energy, you will be able to spend that money however you choose.
