CleanChoice Energy and New Columbia Solar have opened 1 MW of new community solar projects to residents of the District of Columbia.
The new community solar portfolio will serve nearly 200 D.C. residents, allowing them to save money on their utility bills without upfront costs.
New Columbia Solar developed and built the community solar projects and will continue to own, operate and maintain them for the next 20 years. CleanChoice Energy manages project subscriptions, billing and overall customer experience.
“If the district is serious about meeting its commitment to 100 percent renewable energy, expanding community solar options for residents is essential. These new solar projects enable district residents to save money on their utility bills, expand solar access to all consumers and support local renewable energy growth,” says Tom Matzzie, CEO of CleanChoice Energy. “Community solar is a win for D.C. and a win for our planet, so each new project is great news.”
“We are very excited to work with CleanChoice to make solar access as easy as humanly possible for district residents and businesses. With community solar, we have the opportunity to reinvest in our city and provide local, renewable energy to our community,” adds Michael Healy, CEO of New Columbia Solar.
