How it Works

We Install a Solar System

We provide property owners with ancillary revenue to install a solar system on their property.

Solar Energy goes to the Grid

The system's solar energy is sent to the grid and can be redistributed to community members.

Your Neighbors Access Clean Energy

Members sign up to receive clean energy at a discounted rate from what they currently pay the grid.

Your Community Benefits

Your community will have more money in their pockets for a stronger economy. Plus we can all breathe easier.
