How Does Community Solar Work?

Let’s keep it simple

A solar farm is constructed on a strategic piece of property within a utility's service area. The electricity produced is metered and sent directly to the grid. The electric utility allocates the bill credits to the residential and commercial subscribers to the solar farm. The bill credits are typically applied at a 10% discount. This process is handled automatically by your electric utility company. You’ll see the results as reduced charges on your monthly electric bill. You’ll also receive periodic updates from Omni Renewables showing the positive impact your community solar subscription is having on the environment.

Solar farms, located in the community, generate green electricity and send it to the power grid.

The green energy is delivered to your local utility company for distribution.

Watch the savings roll in!

Residential and commercial subscribers will receive bill credits for their portion of green energy generated by the solar farm
