Community Solar DC

At Pepco, we are powering a cleaner and brighter future for our customers and communities. Today, our customers have more choices than ever before in receiving reliable, clean, affordable and innovative energy products, and we are committed to driving that progress.

What Is Community Solar?

As part of our commitment, we support community solar as an opportunity for customers to benefit from solar energy.

For over a century, energy was primarily generated at large central plants, often at considerable distance from the customer. With community solar, a solar generating system provides benefits to community members.

Community options expand access to solar power for renters, those with shaded roofs or properties, and those who choose not to install a system at their home or business for financial or other reasons.

How Does Community Solar Work?

“Farm” of Solar Panels owned and operated by a Community Solar Developer.

3. Energy Generated

Energy generated by Community Solar flows to the energy grid to become part of the overall energy supply.

4. Energy Delivery

Pepco delivers energy through the grid to homes and businesses.

5. Bill Credits

Subscribers receive bill credits on their regular energy bill based on the energy generated by the solar farm and their contracted subscription allocation.

Subscriptions

Through subscription-based community solar, customers subscribe to a portion of the electricity generated and receive credits on their bill for the solar energy produced by the community solar generating system. For additional information please visit the Community Solar Resources page.
