Con Edison Solutions has launched a new community solar offering in Massachusetts.
Once enrolled, subscribers receive a monthly credit from National Grid on their electricity bill for their share of solar energy produced by a community solar installation. Subscribers then pay a lesser amount to Con Edison Solutions for their solar subscription, providing the customer with a net monthly discount on their electricity costs. Community solar was initiated with the Massachusetts Green Communities Act and more fully developed under the recent Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target, or SMART, program.
Con Edison Solutions, one of the Con Edison Clean Energy Businesses, is the developer, owner and operator of a new 4.3 MW solar installation on a site in Northampton, Mass.
“Con Edison Solutions is committed to bringing renewable energy to Massachusetts and to offering those who may not be able to consider solar, like renters, the opportunity to support the development of solar power,” says Lorena Tavlarios, managing director at Con Edison Solutions. “This community solar program will provide participants with the satisfaction of positively contributing to the environment in their community while saving money on their electricity.”
Enrollment is limited by the capacity of the solar facility, the company notes.
