As one of the leading energy companies in the United States, Con Edison has embraced the rising popularity of community solar, allowing their customers to save with a community solar subscription. This means that solar developers like YSG can work alongside Con Edison to make signing up for community solar a seamless process for electricity users across New York State and beyond.

What is Community Solar?

Community solar projects are shared solar PV projects which are open to multiple subscribers from the eligible service territory. The big draw of community solar is that it allows electricity users to benefit from solar energy without having to install solar panels directly on their own property. Community solar subscribers are generally signed up to a project somewhere in their locality.

How Does Community Solar Work?

Community solar subscribers receive bill credits each month to offset the cost of their utility bills. These bill credits are proportional to the energy generated by their subscribed portion of the community solar array. This is why you should work with an established solar company to find the ideal project. The solar company will ensure that you maximize the savings on your Con Edison bill.
