Participating in the Program

There are a two ways to participate in the Solar*Rewards Community program. 

As a subscribing customer, you can purchase or lease interests of a solar garden system developed in your community. This is a great option for renters or condo-owners, or for customers who can’t or don’t want to have their own solar installations. A subscriber is limited by law to participating in a Solar*Reward Community system in their city or county. 

Developers and municipalities can become subscriber organization by installing a community solar garden and receiving production incentives. Subscriber organizations sell or lease shares of the garden to subscribing customers.
