How Community Solar Works

Whether you're a homeowner, renter, or business, Eversource and National Grid customers are encouraged to take advantage of Community Solar, a renewable energy program (supported by the Massachusetts Office of the Public Advocate) that allows you to join a local solar farm for free, and receive solar credits on your monthly electric bill, lowering your payment by up to 10%.

You can be a supporting factor in Massachusetts Renewable Portfolio Standard goal of securing 100% of its energy from renewables by 2050 while reducing your electricity costs without incurring any upfront costs to join or having to install solar panels on your roof.

Be Proud Of Your Electric Bill

One average American home going solar is like:

  • Not burning 8,039 pounds of coal
  • Growing 122 tree seedlings for 10 years
  • Taking 1.5 cars off the road

I signed up in less than 5 minutes and received started immediately seeing savings.

"I have been very happy with the cost savings and the solar farm itself (I live near the Barnstable one) but I have been EXTREMELY impressed by the personal attention of everyone with whom I have interacted at RooflessSolar...they all go above and beyond to make me feel as if I am their only client."

Frequently Asked Questions

How does RooflessSolar work?

A RooflessSolar (Community Solar) farm within your utility’s service territory will produce and transmit clean power to your local electric grid. You, as a participant in the program, receive credit on your electric bill for the power produced by your system (solar panels) located within the solar farm.

How much will I save?

Customers will save 10% on the portion of their electric bill that is offset by your solar system. In other words, if your system produces $100 in electric credits, you will only owe $90 for that portion of your bill. Your bill would be $10 less than you would have paid previous to joining the program.

How much does it cost?

Zero. There is no upfront cost to join the program. Community solar programs are designed to incentivize citizens like yourself to participate in promoting clean energy solutions, and therefore, it’s important that there is zero risk and zero cost to participate.

Do I have to maintain anything?

No. You are participating in a community solar farm that is maintained by a private company specializing in solar technology. You reap the benefits without any of the hassle of traditional rooftop solar systems.

How is RooflessSolar different than rooftop solar?

It's out of sight and out of mind! Many homes and businesses are not ideal for the installation of traditional rooftop solar for reasons including shading limitations, shared rooftop ownership, structural issues, accessibility for maintenance, and HOA limitations, to name a few. Because RooflessSolar is not located on your property, any electric customer – even renters - can participate. RooflessSolar is ideally sited and oriented towards the sun, ensuring optimal solar production with commercial grade equipment.

Do customers need to own a home or building to participate?

No! This is one of the many benefits of participating in Roofless Solar. Anyone with an electric bill is eligible to participate, including both homeowners and renters.
