How does a Subscription with Common Energy work?

  • Guaranteed Savings. No deposits or upfront payments. You only pay for electricity from the solar farm.

  • Electricity from the solar farm will always cost 10% less than the utility. No matter if your utility rates go up or down, the rate you pay will always be 10% less.

  • No roof required. Single-family homes, apartments renters, and condos can join.

  • No installation at your home. The installation at the solar farm produces the electricity.

  • You don't need to switch your electricity generator. Whether your generator is the utility or someone else, you just pay less.

  • Your payment for clean electricity goes to the solar farm, not the utility.

  • You can canel without penalty by giving 90-day advance notice.
