Community solar programs (like Solar CrowdSource's) bring a utility together with its customers who want to choose how they purchase and consume energy. Through utility community solar customers purchase panels of a large, central solar facility and receive an energy credit on their utility bill for the energy the panels produce. Customers get a choice that will have a huge impact on their wellbeing, the environment, and save big bucks in the process!

Read on as these programs gain traction across the United States.
