Subscribe to a solar farm and get electricity at a discount.
With community solar, a solar electricity system is installed on a suitable roof or parcel of land, and then participants who live elsewhere sign up to get benefits from the system, either by receiving net metering credits or offsets toward their electric bill. Participants save money on electric bills and support clean energy deployment without having to install solar themselves.

Joining a local community solar farm is a great way to bring clean energy home.
Solar Electricity: Installing a solar electricity system on your roof is a great way to transition part or all of your home’s electricity to clean sources. A solar electricity system uses electricity generated on-site by the solar panels to power your home. Installing a solar electricity system may be a larger up-front investment than purchasing clean electricity but pays for itself over time and can become a revenue-generating asset for the owner.
Buy Clean Electricity: Renters or homeowners who are not ready to invest in solar electricity or do not have a suitable roof or parcel of land for solar panels can opt in to purchase their electricity from clean sources, like solar or wind power. Anyone who pays an electric bill, including renters, is eligible to buy clean electricity, helping to increase demand in Massachusetts for clean energy resources.
Pledge to reduce your home’s carbon footprint by replacing old systems and appliances with clean energy technologies over time.
