Every new community solar farm built in your area has a limited number of memberships available. Qualified residents of the utility area where the farm is built are eligible to become members. The electricity produced by the solar farm goes on to your local power grid. When you sign up for community solar, you receive credits on your utility bill for your “share” of the electricity produced by the farm. Since the credits are generally worth more than you pay for them, the average member can expect to save on electricity costs.
