How Does The NYS PTA Community Solar Fundraiser Work?
When you enroll in your local Community Solar farm, the school that you select will receive a donation. This donation is at no cost to you. You have no cost to enroll and you have a guaranteed savings of 10% on the renewable energy bill credits that are posted to your electric utility bill.
How Does Community Solar Work?
Our local solar farms produce energy that is fed into the regional utility grid.
We communicate to your utility company that you will be receiving a portion of a solar farm’s production each month.
Your solar energy credits will be deducted from your utility bill, reducing the amount of energy you pay for at the utility’s rate.
You will receive a bill for your discounted energy credits. We won’t bill you until you’ve had the chance to see your credits.

We are so grateful that we were able to be a part of the community solar project in our town. We own a condo and were unable to have access to solar power until now. Such an easy, affordable process!
