Frequently Asked Questions (Community Solar)

Community solar is a different model for solar energy. Instead of installing solar on your own home or property, community solar allows many people to come together and receive power from a larger solar array.  Traditional residential solar systems require a large upfront investment, an ideal sunny location, and homeownership.  Through this Community Solar initiative, HG&E partnered with a solar developer to offer benefits from the solar systems to residential customers.

There are many great benefits for customers and the community!

  • Clean, renewable energy for your home.
  • Community solar is an easy, FREE way to participate in a solar project.
  • You will help HG&E reach renewable energy goals.
  • Helps to keep rates stable.
  • In order to meet the project requirements, HG&E needs residential customers to opt in.  Without you, we will not be able to make this a Community Solar project.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint.
