COMMUNITY SOLAR

Helping to reduce costs and simplify the process of implementing residential solar PV

Community Solar involves multiple customers sharing a large Solar Photovoltaic (PV) array through Virtual Net Metering or Group Net Metering programs.

Community Solar offers an option for participants who do not own their home or business location, do not have a suitable solar site because of shading, or because of the condition or orientation of their roof. Community Solar is also a great option for individuals and businesses who want to support clean energy but don’t want to assume the entire cost of an array.

Often Community Solar projects are owned by a municipality or a solar energy developer, such as Norwich Solar Technologies, and participants simply lease panels in the system or purchase a portion of the power the array generates. In some projects, participants make upfront payments to construct the array, then receive a monthly credit on their electric bills for 10 or 20 years or more, depending on the agreement. Members can typically choose how much power they want to draw from the PV array—some or all of their electric usage.

In addition to arrays dedicated to community solar, group net metering can also provide an option for rooftop or ground mounted PV systems producing more power than the owner needs. By net metering with neighboring off-takers, they can share and monetize their excess credits instead of having them expire.

Norwich Solar Technologies provides end-to-end services to commercial solar electric customers including Development, Design, Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Power Purchase Agreements (or Solar Service Agreements), Structured Financial Solutions,* and Operations and Maintenance.

* This is not an offer of financing, which is dependent on bank acceptance and other eligibility criteria being met.
