Subscribers will receive credits on their utility bills from energy generated at the solar facility in proportion to the size of their subscription. The output from a community solar generation facility shall be purchased by the utility in the form of subscription credits allocated to the subscribers. To the extent that a subscriber's subscription credit exceeds the subscriber's electric bill in any billing period, the credit will be applied against future bills. Read the Bill »
