Going solar in Maine has never been easier. Subscribe to a community solar farm and save money on your electricity bills. Community solar provides clean, renewable energy to homeowners, renters and businesses in Maine without having to install a solar panel system on your roof or property.
How does community solar work?
Solar Provider Group is developing and operating several community solar projects in the State of Maine. These solar facilities generate clean, renewable energy that is distributed into the local electricity grid. Through the Net Energy Billing Program, when you subscribe to a community solar project, you will receive credits towards your electricity bills resulting in financial savings. Solar Provider Group will determine the optimal amount of your electricity usage to offset with solar energy to garner the largest amount of savings for your home or business.
Solar energy is quickly becoming the most sustainable and cost-effective source of power to communities. By subscribing to a community solar project, you are helping the environment while saving money. This is a unique win-win opportunity, and we are excited to be an accredited developer recognized by the Maine Public Utilities Commission that will provide clean, renewable power to the citizens of Maine.
