Community Solar for Rochester
Community Solar allows every RGE customer access to clean energy without the constraints and expenses of installing solar panels on their property. Anyone who rents or owns and currently uses RGE can save 10% by enrolling in a community solar program for free.
Rochester Solar has teamed with local community solar projects to provide residents of upstate NY access to power from local solar farms. We only work with companies that get their energy from upstate NY solar farms.
When you enroll in Community Solar, you benefit in the following ways
- Save 10% on your electricity
- Reduce your carbon footprint
- Help Stimulate the Local Economy
When you sign up to participate, you will still receive energy from the RGE grid. You will not notice a difference at home. When your bill arrives, you will see “solar credits” applied to the electricity charges. The community solar provider will take 10% off this amount and bill you. The average customer saves around $200 a year and about 5,000 lbs of carbon emissions.
