  • Why is a customer’s utility bill needed to enroll with Clearway?

    Clearway requires a customer’s utility bill to enroll in our Community Solar program in order to assign the customer to the appropriate allocation size of a solar farm based on the historical consumption that is featured on a utility bill. Upon receiving the customer’s historical energy consumption details from the utility bill, Clearway is able to best establish that the customer is subscribed to the appropriate number of panels to render savings for their account. Additionally, a utility bill is required to verify a customer’s utility account and account number, in order to facilitate the application of solar bill credits with a customer’s utility. Utilities are responsible for the meter readings of solar production and the application of solar bill credits for a customer. The authentication between a Community Solar subscription and a customer’s utility starts with a utility bill and the accompanying utility account number.

    Customer information including utility account information and a utility bill is confidential and secure. Clearway will never have access to a customer’s utility account.
