How it Works

Community Power

Community solar farms generate clean energy and deliver it to the local utility’s electric grid. Members of the community subscribe to purchase their energy from the power generated by the farm.

Same Wires

Because the solar array is routing power to the utility,  community energy is delivered the same way. No complicated wiring or expensive equipment to install.

Get Some Credit

IGS Solar distributes a portion of the solar energy credit to each enrolled home or business based on the monthly output from the farm.
