How Choosing Local Solar
Helps Your Community

 
We want to empower your town to become energy independent
through 100% renewable and local energy choice.
 

Joule Community Power has established a community solar program that gives back to the community and enables subscribers who support clean energy generation to spend less on electricity. Subscribers save approximately 10% annually on electricity by supporting renewable energy. We support your community by funding future local sustainability efforts based on program enrollment.

A DIRECT INVESTMENT INTO YOUR COMMUNITY

 

SUSTAINABILITY FUNDS
To help put communities on a new path towards 100% renewable generation, we’re establishing Sustainability Funds for participating municipalities. We'll allocate money towards a municipality’s sustainability fund for each subscriber enrolled in our solar program.

PURPOSE OF THE FUNDS
Municipalities can use the Funds to finance future sustainability projects of their own choosing.

WHERE DOES THE FUNDING COME FROM?
Solar farm developers typically have high customer acquisition costs. By enrolling customers in local solar as part of a municipally-endorsed community choice aggregation program, however, we can significantly reduce the sales and marketing budgets required to attract enough customers to make a solar farm project viable. By reducing costs, we’re able to channel savings back into the community.

GROW YOUR COMMUNITY'S FUND
Each solar project can generate only so much energy. Therefore, enrollment is limited by capacity. Customers don't need to participate in a community choice program to enroll in the local solar program, but funds can only be allocated towards participating communities and direct funds towards a participating community.
