    *Clearway Community Solar farm power generation as of April 2021.

  • How much solar energy will be generated by the solar farm and a customer’s allocation?

    The solar energy generated by the solar farms vary with the seasons and the degree of sunlight. More solar energy is generated during sunnier times of the year, however, the solar farms will continue to effectively generate renewable power during the winter season. With the potential for less sunlight in winter seasons, there may be lower solar production than other seasons. Clearway’s program is designed for the ebb and flow of solar production, along with fluctuations in a customer’s energy consumption, and the rate and pricing structures featured within the Clearway Customer Agreement factor in these variables to help ensure customer savings benefits.*

    *Clearway subscription offers vary between regions and savings benefits may vary.

  • Who builds the Community Solar farms?

    Clearway Community Solar works with third-party developers and local construction teams and contractors to build the solar farms. An estimated 65-150+ local jobs are created during the construction phase of a Community Solar farm. Our professional, dedicated teams are highly trained, industry experts. We use industrial grade panels that are fully tested prior to installation. Our teams additionally handle all inspections and interconnection to the power grid in collaboration with local utilities.

  • Who maintains the Community Solar farms?

    Clearway Community Solar is responsible for year-round maintenance of the solar farms.

  • Does Clearway charge a maintenance fee?

    No, there is no maintenance fee in the Clearway Community Solar Customer Agreement for any region.

  • What kind of solar panels are used on Clearway Solar Farms?

    Clearway Community Solar uses industrial-grade solar panels that are thoroughly tested for performance and weather endurance. Although there is normal, expected degradation over the years, the panels are engineered to last over 20 years before needing replacement.

  • How are the Community Solar farms built?

    First, Clearway Community Solar teams carefully select appropriate sites and land to build solar farms, ensuring adequate amounts of sunlight and meeting all permitting requirements and regulations. Next, the construction phase begins, which can take up to six months. Once construction is complete, Clearway Community Solar works with the utility to connect the farm to the power grid — this phase is called interconnection. Finally, the farm is inspected by the utility and, once deemed operational, it is activated and begins generating power. The solar farms fill up quickly and customers are encouraged to complete their enrollment to ensure placement on the earliest available project. Customers are not billed by Clearway until a solar farm is actively producing power and solar bill credits are generated.

  • Can customers visit the Community Solar farms?

    No, at this time Clearway does not allow visitors to the solar farms as many are located on private property. Clearway will share information about each solar farm, including the town in which it is located and number of panels, as well as farm photos and videos.
