Community Solar Legislative Forum

April 3, 2019 @ 7:00 pm


Community solar dramatically expands the opportunities for residents and businesses to participate in the growing solar economy. In community solar, participants can subscribe to a portion of an offsite solar project and receive credit
on their electricity bill for the power produced, just as if the solar panels were on their own roof. Eighteen states and the District of Columbia have enacted community solar programs. The Pennsylvania General Assembly is now considering legislation to create a community solar program in
Pennsylvania. Come to this informative Community Solar Legislative Forum to learn more. For questions about event, contact Steve, 717-350-0437.
