Community Solar

What is Community Solar?

PSE&G, together with the NJ Clean Energy Program, is offering Community Solar pilot program to residential and commercial electric customers in New Jersey. Community solar refers to local solar generation facilities that are shared by multiple community subscribers. This pilot program allows PSE&G customers who are unable to participate in solar programs to receive credit on their electricity bills for their share of the power produced while supporting local, clean energy.

How Does Community Solar Work?

  • Customer signs up for the community solar project with a certain subscription percentage and pays a fee to a generator facility.
  • As the shared community solar equipment generates electricity, the generator’s meter will register the production per calendar month.
  • The electricity generated is distributed to Community Solar residential and business customers who are subscribed with a generator.
  • After the generator account is billed, the production usage (in kWh) is distributed to the customers based on their subscriber percentage.
  • The allocated kWh is included on the customer’s bill as a Community Solar Credit for Delivery and Supply.
    • Any unallocated kWh at the end of the month is banked and used in future months as applicable.
    • Any unallocated kWh at the end of 12 months will be credited at the avoided cost of power.
