Clean renewable energy for everyone!
Most Americans realize solar energy is a great way to protect the environment, lower their carbon footprint and save money on electricity. Unfortunately, not everyone can install solar panels where they live for a variety of reasons (renters, shady areas, etc.).
Agway Energy Services is partnering with Ampion Renewable Energy to offer all its customers a way to take advantage of solar energy through community solar gardens.
What is Community Solar?
A community solar garden is a solar power plant whose electricity is generated by capturing energy from the sun. The electricity is then distributed via the utility grid. Members of the community (you, your neighbor, etc.) who subscribe to a solar farm will receive a credit on their electricity bills for their share of the solar power produced. This provides the opportunity for those who can’t, or don’t want to, install solar panels on their property to still benefit from solar.
How does it work?
Based on your annual electricity usage, Ampion assigns you a share of a solar farm’s total production and your subscription claims this share. The solar farm produces electricity on your behalf with you receiving a credit for the amount of electricity produced by your share of the solar farm. The electricity is delivered to the utility grid where it is used by the public.
What are the benefits?
Community Solar subscribers get a discount on their electricity bills based on how much power the solar farm produces. Homeowners don’t have to worry about any installation, and renters can participate as well. Nothing to buy, own or install. The best part is that the average household will reduce their carbon footprint by 10%, equal to getting 1.5 cars off the road!!
How do I pay?
The utility company sends you a monthly invoice, as it always has, with your credit applied. You pay the difference and if there is an excess credit, it will roll over onto your next bill.
Ampion invoices you for your subscription, which is always less than the credit you receive on your utility bill and collects your payment. Your invoice from Ampion will never exceed the credit on your utility invoice, so you will always see a benefit for being part of the program.
