Community solar programs on Long Island and in New York City enable all PSEG LI and ConEd customers to reduce their electric costs by subscribing to a solar project in their community and virtually offsetting their bill with renewable energy. It also enables owners of large properties to generate revenue by hosting a community solar project on their rooftop, parking lot, or open space.

How does community solar work?

Community distributed generation (CDG), or shared solar, consists of one central solar array which is virtually connected to ten or more “subscribers”. The energy produced by the array offsets the utility bills of subscribers. Subscribers are often those who aren’t able to install solar panels on their own property for a variety of reasons including:

  • No roof space or shaded roof space
  • lder roof or wrong roofing material
  • Condo/co-op board rules
  • Municipal zoning codes prohibitive of solar
