For many residential customers, the idea of using community solar to power their homes has become an attractive possibility. And NRG can provide the resources and expertise to make it happen.
Why community solar
The sun is a powerful and enduring resource. For many homeowners, however, the logistics of where their house is located or how their roof is structured and positioned can make applying a traditional solar solution challenging or even impossible.
Community solar changes the equation. With it, an off-site solar installation takes the place of an on-roof or on-site approach. By purchasing a portion of the solar credits generated at this facility, homeowners can support renewable energy in their local community without any upfront costs or changes to their home.
NRG is leading the way
The NRG team is already making functional and effective community solar projects a reality. And they are doing so in places some might consider unexpected - Minnesota and New England are two examples. But that's the beauty of the solution - bringing new people and new areas into the mix for a brighter, more sustainable energy future.
How it works
Simplicity and affordability are the two driving factors behind every community solar success story. It's simple in that no equipment is required on an individual's property. No rooftop, no problem. And with no upfront costs and long-term price certainty factored into the structure of every agreement, community solar is also an affordable option.
- Sign Up - Individuals subscribe to a solar farm with $0 due at signing and the ability to lock in price certainty.
- Connect - The NRG community solar team will work to match each residence to a local solar farm.
- Receive Energy - In fact, energy is delivered to homes the same way it is today, only now they are supporting solar energy generation in their community.
- Enjoy Solar Credits - Homeowners pay each month for production from the solar farm and will receive a credit on their electricity bill for their share of the farm's solar production.
