Here are are some key facts to know about Clearway’s latest New York Community Solar contract, or “Customer Agreement”* that is effective as of 2021.
How Does a Community Solar System Work?
Community Solar makes solar power accessible to almost anyone. Instead of having to install a set of solar panels on your roof or property, just subscribe to a Clearway Community Solar farm. Renewable, local electricity is generated by the solar farm and sent to the power grid. In return for supporting solar power, you receive solar bill credits that are applied to your monthly utility bill, offsetting the cost of electricity you use and reducing your carbon footprint.
More About New York’s Clean Energy Standard
Known also as the state’s “70 by ‘30” goal, New York’s Clean Energy Standard (CES) dictates that, by 2030, 70 percent of all electricity used throughout the state of New York must come from renewable energy sources. Reaching this goal will assist in combating climate change and will reduce pollution and its harmful effects on New Yorkers’ health. Reaching the “70 by ‘30” goal will also ensure the state has a diverse, plentiful, and reliable low carbon energy supply for the future.
